Abstract:

Early stages of research on augmenting human intellect are reported. An experimental system comprising a tapewriter tape-punching typewriter, a computer-programmed Translator, and a Flexowriter and incorporating a text-editing facility has been implemented and was used in composing much of the original rough draft of the report. The Z-code system that provides the editing operations is described. The general philosophy of the system is described, and then an illustration is given in which the philosophy is applied to a particular problem. A chord handset is discussed that will permit one or two-handed binary transmission, and possible results of its incorporation into the system are mentioned. Questions still to be answered and speculations about possible future results are included. Author
