Enablement can refer to:

  1. Any approach which provides means or opportunity.
  2. A patent law requirement, see sufficiency of disclosure.
  3. Human enhancement by applying emerging technologies to modify human capacities. Zack Lynch, managing director of NeuroInsights, recommended at an AAAS workshop,[1] the term “enablement” as a replacement for the current buzz-word “enhancement” after noting that the line between therapy and enhancement is particularly faint and subjective. He believes the term enhancement is already politically charged in both its meaning and use among science policy players. He sees no hard line between “therapy” and “enhancement”; instead, there is a range of capacities already in normal distribution among the population, and enablement refers to maximizing each person’s latent potential.
