Experiences with an Augmented Human Intellect System: A Revolution in Communication.
Bair, James H.
The Augmented Human Intellect System (AHI) has been designed to facilitate communication among knowledge workers who may accomplish their entire job utilizing this advanced technology. The system is capable of sending information to geographically distributed users. It permits access to and modification of stored information by a number of persons concurrently or independently. The effects of the system in a government research and development office are threefold: (1) the individual is no longer limited to the rigidity of written information; (2) an "augmented knowledge workshop" promotes the integration and synthesization of the efforts of individuals to yield increased group creativity; and (3) the organization can therefore operate around a visible, dynamic body of data generated by the various levels in its hierarchy and immediately communicate managerial or technical matters. The problems encountered include psychological resistance, system failures, weak training due to inexperience, and hardware unavailability. (Author/EE)
