Facilitating the Evolution of
our Collective IQ
Strategically improving our capability for
coping with complex, urgent, large-scale
problems.
Douglas C. Engelbart
Accelerating-Change Conference
Stanford University, 7-Nov-04
Life-Changing Epiphany
Let me design a professional
goal which will maximize the
contribution my career can
make to mankind!
Just-engaged, 25-yr-old Country Kid,
full of excited thoughts about building a family:
“Hey, but there’s also that professional career.
Some big plans there, too?” (Over-does it!)
Weeks Later: Naïve Country Kid’s
Lifetime Goal Emerged, and Stuck!
“As much as possible, to boost
mankind’s collective capability
for coping with complex, urgent
problems”
Continuous, dedicated pursuit
now for over 50 years.
Consider a community’s Collective IQ
as its relative capability for dealing with
complex, urgent problems
• To understand them as thoroughly as
possible
• To unearth the best candidate solutions
• To assess resources and operational
capabilities and select appropriate solution
commitments
• To understand how best to organize and
execute selected approaches
• To monitor progress and adapt effectively to
unforeseen complications. Etc. …
Collective IQ:

CODIAK Capability
“Capabilities” become a key,
central consideration
… and we find very important things to
observe about our capabilities:
Consider how they are derived;
And how they form an “infrastructure” that
opens an important perspective to our
quest for
significantly boosting
our “Collective IQ”!

Purposefully pursuing accelerated evolution of mankind’s
knowledge development and application capabilities is
a HUGE CHALLENGE, and
requires very effective strategies in applying our resources.
This Augmentation Model
is valid over huge scale!

Critical Factor:
“Concurrent” Evolution of
Society’s DKRs
Large-Scale Facilitated
Evolution
• No one can specify the design for our future
capability infrastructure
– Far too many of the possible “improvement steps”
will change the design environment for other
improvement candidates.
• Have to depend upon an Evolutionary
Process!
• BUT, we CAN learn to FACILITATE this
evolutionary process!

“Co-Evolution Frontier”
Human-Systems and Tool Systems
Interactively Co-Evolving
• Technology's quantum leaps generate
accelerating rate of opportunities.
• But, human paradigms already lag behind
opportunities.
• The scale of technology change = >
• Paradigm changes have to be accelerated
– Human skills, culture, governance already severely
stressed
Critically needed:
Effective Facilitation of our Co-Evolution.
Emergent Co-Evolution Frontier
On a scale we can barely anticipate
Outposts?
Best Routes?
Where best should your organization head?
….By what route? Who else is out there?
 We need a DKR
that provides the best
possible
understanding of the
current and projected
states of this frontier.
 Every member
organization can then
make its own choices
about its movements
into this frontier.

Large-Scale Facilitated Evolution
Common Goal: Continuous Improvement of Large-Scale
Collective Capabilities.
• Networked Improvement Communities (NICs) defined
around specific areas of interest
• Prime Goal: Improve Collective IQ of NICs!
• Organize NICs into a large-scale Improvement
Infrastructure
– for facilitating the Concurrent Evolution
– of the associated Augmentation Systems.
Central Strategy: Bootstrapping
The better we get at getting better, the
better and faster we’ll get better.

OHS - the critical missing piece
The Need For An
Open Hyperdocument System (OHS)
To support the implementation and use of DKRs
• “Open” - Scaleable, evolvable, interoperable
across domains
• “Hyper” - To enhance access, maneuverability,
verification, study and integration.
• “Document” – The Knowledge Container into
which the emerging heterogeneous knowledge
is captured, integrated, and managed.
• “System” - Provides a complete “Community
Knowledge Workshop”
Generalize and Extend the
“Hyper” term
Let “Hyper” mean this:
“anything that new technology can bring to
the generation, storage, processing, and
portrayal of symbolized knowledge.”
– This definition provides much more than is
included in current “Hypertext”.
– E.g.: High-Resolution Addressing;
Optional Viewing; Heightened Mobility;
Powerful Manipulation Capabilities; etc…
Other Framework Items:
• Early Kickoff: a DKR about example DKRs
• Open Hyperdocument System (OHS)
• Launching OHS evolution: The HyperScope
• Knowledge-Workshop Architects
• Pedestrian Users … High-Performance Users
• Multiple UIS Options
• High-Performance Support Teams
• Inevitable: Hardcopy documents become
obsolete.
Challenges for DKR Development & Use:
Rationale for Building a DKR of DKR’s
• Special sets of skills required for increasing
capabilities
– Who will provide the integration & linking of
disparate information into the solid, verifiable
DKR structures
• Properties & structural principles for DKR
knowledge containers will be critical part of DKR
evolution
• Dynamic, seamless integration of new data while
preserving the DKR’s evolutionary history
• Assessment and rating of the organization’s
capabilities to develop and use its DKRs
• Capability Infrastructure – support a wide range of
usage capabilities, e.g. multiple user interfaces
that reflect increasing levels of user expertise.

Facilitating Collective IQ Evolution

  • 1. Facilitating the Evolution of our Collective IQ Strategically improving our capability for coping with complex, urgent, large-scale problems. Douglas C. Engelbart Accelerating-Change Conference Stanford University, 7-Nov-04
  • 2. Life-Changing Epiphany Let me design a professional goal which will maximize the contribution my career can make to mankind! Just-engaged, 25-yr-old Country Kid, full of excited thoughts about building a family: “Hey, but there’s also that professional career. Some big plans there, too?” (Over-does it!)
  • 3. Weeks Later: Naïve Country Kid’s Lifetime Goal Emerged, and Stuck! “As much as possible, to boost mankind’s collective capability for coping with complex, urgent problems” Continuous, dedicated pursuit now for over 50 years.
  • 4. Consider a community’s Collective IQ as its relative capability for dealing with complex, urgent problems • To understand them as thoroughly as possible • To unearth the best candidate solutions • To assess resources and operational capabilities and select appropriate solution commitments • To understand how best to organize and execute selected approaches • To monitor progress and adapt effectively to unforeseen complications. Etc. …
  • 5. Collective IQ: Emerged As Primary Strategic Focus Dynamic Knowledge Repository COncurrently Developing, Integrating, & Applying Knowledge CODIAK Capability
  • 6. “Capabilities” become a key, central consideration … and we find very important things to observe about our capabilities: Consider how they are derived; And how they form an “infrastructure” that opens an important perspective to our quest for significantly boosting our “Collective IQ”!
  • 7. Capability Infrastructure Humans’ Capabilities Depend Upon Skills Knowledge Training Basic Human Capabilities Sensory Perceptual Motor Mental (This interface is much more significant than “HCI”) Tool System Media Portrayal Views Study Manipulations Retrieve Compute Communicate Human System Paradigms Organization Procedures Customs Methods Language Attitudes their Augmentation System
  • 8. Purposefully pursuing accelerated evolution of mankind’s knowledge development and application capabilities is a HUGE CHALLENGE, and requires very effective strategies in applying our resources. This Augmentation Model is valid over huge scale! Individual Human Community Of Practice A Complete Country The World Operative IQ Collective IQ Collective IQ Collective IQ

  • 10. Large-Scale Facilitated Evolution • No one can specify the design for our future capability infrastructure – Far too many of the possible “improvement steps” will change the design environment for other improvement candidates. • Have to depend upon an Evolutionary Process! • BUT, we CAN learn to FACILITATE this evolutionary process!
  • 11. Anticipate-able Today The World’s Organizations in Human-Tool Space Representative distribution of world’s societies Tool System Utilization HumanSystemDevelopment
  • 12. “Co-Evolution Frontier” Human-Systems and Tool Systems Interactively Co-Evolving • Technology's quantum leaps generate accelerating rate of opportunities. • But, human paradigms already lag behind opportunities. • The scale of technology change = > • Paradigm changes have to be accelerated – Human skills, culture, governance already severely stressed Critically needed: Effective Facilitation of our Co-Evolution.
  • 13. Emergent Co-Evolution Frontier On a scale we can barely anticipate Outposts? Best Routes? Where best should your organization head? ….By what route? Who else is out there?  We need a DKR that provides the best possible understanding of the current and projected states of this frontier.  Every member organization can then make its own choices about its movements into this frontier. Uncharted, and Changing Tool System Utilization HumanSystemDevelopment
  • 14. Networked Improvement Community (NIC) Dynamic Knowledge Repository Recorded Dialog Networked Improvement Community (NIC) An Augmented Improvement Community, Using best-practice Collective-IQ Capability To improve its common-choice group capability. Org 2 Org N Org 1 • Investigate & collect intelligence • Share experience of using leading-edge, collective-IQ practices. • Objective: provide best understanding of the “Co-Evolution Frontier” for augmenting this capability. Knowledge Products Intelligence Collections
  • 15. Large-Scale Facilitated Evolution Common Goal: Continuous Improvement of Large-Scale Collective Capabilities. • Networked Improvement Communities (NICs) defined around specific areas of interest • Prime Goal: Improve Collective IQ of NICs! • Organize NICs into a large-scale Improvement Infrastructure – for facilitating the Concurrent Evolution – of the associated Augmentation Systems.
  • 16. Central Strategy: Bootstrapping The better we get at getting better, the better and faster we’ll get better. 1. Currently available information about Collective IQ 2. Best DKR/knowledge about improving Collective IQ The Bootstrap Feedback Loop 3 3. NIC immediately utilizing the best Collective IQ improvement knowledge NIC for Improving Collective IQ 1 2
  • 17. Bootstrapping: Extension to Many NICs The Bootstrap Feedback Loop NIC for Improving Collective IQ NIC for Improving Capability Z. NIC for Improving Capability X
  • 18. Towards Effective Facilitation Where/How to Start our First NICs? NIC Candidates? Special Improvement Infrastructures? Government Agencies? Businesses? Professional Societies? Universities? Philanthropic Organizations?
  • 19. OHS - the critical missing piece The Need For An Open Hyperdocument System (OHS) To support the implementation and use of DKRs • “Open” - Scaleable, evolvable, interoperable across domains • “Hyper” - To enhance access, maneuverability, verification, study and integration. • “Document” – The Knowledge Container into which the emerging heterogeneous knowledge is captured, integrated, and managed. • “System” - Provides a complete “Community Knowledge Workshop”
  • 20. Generalize and Extend the “Hyper” term Let “Hyper” mean this: “anything that new technology can bring to the generation, storage, processing, and portrayal of symbolized knowledge.” – This definition provides much more than is included in current “Hypertext”. – E.g.: High-Resolution Addressing; Optional Viewing; Heightened Mobility; Powerful Manipulation Capabilities; etc…
  • 21. Other Framework Items: • Early Kickoff: a DKR about example DKRs • Open Hyperdocument System (OHS) • Launching OHS evolution: The HyperScope • Knowledge-Workshop Architects • Pedestrian Users … High-Performance Users • Multiple UIS Options • High-Performance Support Teams • Inevitable: Hardcopy documents become obsolete.
  • 22. Challenges for DKR Development & Use: Rationale for Building a DKR of DKR’s • Special sets of skills required for increasing capabilities – Who will provide the integration & linking of disparate information into the solid, verifiable DKR structures • Properties & structural principles for DKR knowledge containers will be critical part of DKR evolution • Dynamic, seamless integration of new data while preserving the DKR’s evolutionary history • Assessment and rating of the organization’s capabilities to develop and use its DKRs • Capability Infrastructure – support a wide range of usage capabilities, e.g. multiple user interfaces that reflect increasing levels of user expertise.
