With much of our attention focused the rise of advanced artificial intelligence, few consider the potential for radically amplified human intelligence IA .
There will also be augmentations that focus on other portions of sensory cortex, like tactile cortex and auditory cortex.
To achieve real strides will require brain implants with connections to millions of neurons.
Smart people tend to feel comparatively more alienated in the world, and for a being smarter than everyone, the effect would be greatly amplified.
AI is developed on paper and in code.
I recently wrote an article that speculates on global political transformation caused by a large amount of power concentrated in the hands of a small group due to "miracle technologies" like IA or molecular manufacturing.
