Augmented Intelligence: Building exoskeletons for the mind

And, why the world needs augmented communication

When we think about uses for artificial intelligence and automation, we often think forward to super-intelligent machines replacing humans. I think that’s ambitious. I think we’ll get there, I just think the next wave isn’t pure AI (artificial intelligence). If you want discuss opportunities, we need to discuss a different AI — and that’s augmented intelligence. Humans will be improved by, but not necessarily replaced by, machines in the next wave. And, that’s going to be great.

I like Kevin Kelly’s saying “The business plans of the next 10,000 startups are easy to forecast: Take X and add AI.”

I would add another one “The best startups of the next decade will use augmented intelligence to create new businesses and markets that didn’t exist before.”

Similar to how exoskeletons will enhance human strength in the physical world across a lot of use cases. Much of the interesting software being built in the next decade will be “exoskeletons for the mind”.

Much of the interesting software being built in the next decade will be “exoskeletons for the mind”.
