Intelligence Amplification

Intelligence Amplification is the science of getting humans and machines to work together to do things which neither could do alone. Typically this involves the using Machine Intelligence to organise and present large amounts of information, which the computer outputs in a form that allows the human to use their pattern recognition capability to spot similarities and differences that are worth further investigation.

Because of the leading edge nature of this science, it ties in very closely with most of the advances in artificial intelligence, man-machine interface research, virtual reality, and lots of other computer related sciences which are only just scratching the surface of their subject area. As such, the advances in this field are going to be considerable over the next forty to fifty years.
