Advanced Intellect-Augmentation Techniques.
Engelbart, D. C.
This progress report covers a two-year project which is part of a program that is exploring the value of computer aids in augmenting human intellectual capability. The background and nature of the program, its resources, and the activities it has undertaken are outlined. User experience in applying augmentation tools and techniques to various normal working tasks is described so as to convey an impression of what it is like to work in an augmented environment. The conclusion is drawn that this type of working-support, computer-aid systems for augmenting individual and team effort is going to be widely developed and used. Multi-access computer networks are seen to be especially important; they will become special marketplaces where a new kind of competitive evolution will take place, not only in hardware, software, and special services, but also in roles, skills, working methods, and employment dynamics for the intellectual workers at the terminals.
