Abstract : New formalisms and tools have helped to augment human intelligence. Computers, used in the right way, are a unique opportunity to take another great step forward in order to create cooperative systems which enable humans to achieve more than if they were working alone. Human-computer interaction (HCI) software is needed to exploit this potential. Creating better HCI software will have a major effect on software engineers themselves, since their main activity is designing for problems which are mostly ill-structured. Intelligent computer- support systems and good interfaces are crucial in order to improve productivity for the software engineer, and to increase the quality of the software product. The cost of software and hardware in future systems will be small compared with the cognitive costs of the development, comprehension, and use of complex systems. (KR)
