Intelligence augmentation is the ability to complement our biological natural faculties of reasoning with new ones based on cultural and technological advances.
Even something as fundamental as speaking, and understanding speech is not entirely just biological. From speech, to writing, the printing press, and electronic communications, the process has been long and important. It vastly increased our ability to collect, analyze and act on information.
The next quantum leap in improving the tools that allow us to gather data about the world is about to happen through brain machine interfaces of various kinds. These are today experimented and then implemented almost exclusively on people with disabilities. They are eager to improve lost or impaired faculties! But just as it happened with computer based speech recognition, these interfaces are going to rapidly become indispensable tools, that all of us will want to use.
When Elon Musk talks about the mission of Neuralink, he refers to the need to improve our ability, to increase our information processing bandwidth, especially in a world increasingly defined by artificial intelligence.
When a jolting world exposes you to degrees of adaptation required superior to your natural abilities, you have two possible choices: to give up, because you are unable to overcome those limitations or to embrace the adaptations through technological means. Through those technological means, you can extend the range of your adaptability to the world whose acceleration is increasing. So you don’t have to throw in the towel. You don’t have to give up. You don’t have to feel disenfranchised without any power. But you can feel a protagonist of the jolting world of tomorrow.
That is why I am so excited to also offer an entire series of courses about jolting technologies that you can enjoy, you can use to your advantage talking about artificial intelligence, quantum computing, blockchain and cryptocurrencies, decentralization, and many, many other topics that we have covered in past episodes of the context. The jolting technologies courses are an exciting way of learning and learning to act interactive, deeply documented, participatory, community oriented, updated constantly modern and I am awaiting you to join so that you can also take advantage of the sharing of this empowering knowledge.
