Let’s build an exocortex to outcompete the AGI! An exocortex is an external information processing tool to augment your own cognition. Daily planners, computers, and smart phones are crude examples of working exocortex machines. To get to the next level, brain computer interfaces and good software will converge to get us there. Whyrusleeping believes software is the current bottleneck. We have good information storage and search tool, but information access and comprehension are lacking. Beyond these concepts, the hardest and most interesting ability to enhance is our ability to inference, to generate new ideas from pre-existing information.
