Engelbart, Doug

As principal investigator at the Augmentation Research Center at the Stanford Research Institute, Engelbart led his research group in the development of the On-Line System (NLS), with tools to support asynchronous use by project collaborators. Under his leadership, the team also pioneered some of the first examples of hypermedia, multiple windows on a screen, display editing, outline processing, linking and in-field object addressing, context-sensitive help, and collaborative computing, including video-conferencing and use of remote shared workspaces.

Ershov, Andrei

1931(b.)-1988(d.) A founder of the Siberian School of Computer Science, Ershov was one of the early Soviet pioneers in the field of theoretical and systems programming. He investigated a broad spectrum of systems programming problems: implementation of DO statement in programming languages; hash-addressing with application to the common subexpression elimination; program schemata over distributed memory, and the theory and algorithms for global memory optimization. His book, A Programming Programme for the BESM Computer, was one of the world's first monographs on automatic programming.
