    4. Hi I'm Christina Engelbart - I worked with my father for many years as Associate Director of the Doug Engelbart Institute. I studied his work in backwards, i.e. I jumped in 1989 helping him refine his message and organize management seminars about his strategy for the future, and only years later did I ever sit down to read this 1962 document. Wow - the opening paragraphs are still so prescient, concise, and compelling! I'm looking forward to collaborating with all on this project!

    1. By "augmenting human intellect" we mean increasing the capability of a man to approach a complex problem situation, to gain comprehension to suit his particular needs, and to derive solutions to problems. Increased capability in this respect is taken to mean a mixture of the following: more-rapid comprehension, better comprehension, the possibility of gaining a useful degree of comprehension in a situation that previously was too complex, speedier solutions, better solutions, and the possibility of finding solutions to problems that before seemed insoluble. And by "complex situations" we include the professional problems of diplomats, executives, social scientists, life scientists, physical scientists, attorneys, designers--whether the problem situation exists for twenty minutes or twenty years. We do not speak of isolated clever tricks that help in particular situations. We refer to a way of life in an integrated domain where hunches, cut-and-try, intangibles, and the human "feel for a situation" usefully co-exist with powerful concepts, streamlined terminology and notation, sophisticated methods, and high-powered electronic aids.
