This paper describes an experiment which attempted to subjectively measure the transfer of technology directly from the research arena to operational application. Areas of technology included recently developed computer software 'natural languages' based on artificial intelligence (AI) concepts, computer networking technology and automatic message handling systems. Exposure to this technology was accomplished over a 12 week period where the experimental group was provided with the tools and understanding to use the various research products. Data were collected from this experimental group prior to and after the 12 week period. Analysis of the data revealed interesting aspects concerning a user's perception of the value or utility of computer systems and computer software designed specifically to enhance the human-system interaction.
