From AI to IA
Around the same time that AI was first defined, there was another concept that emerged: intelligence amplification (IA), which was also variously known as cognitive augmentation or machine augmented intelligence. In contrast to AI, which is a standalone system capable of processing information as well as or better than a human, IA is actually designed to complement and amplify human intelligence. IA has one big edge over AI: it builds on human intelligence that has evolved over millions of years, while AI attempts to build intelligence from scratch.
Although you could augment cognition via creating pristine neurological wavelengths conducive to neurogenesis via electrodes, or rather this device I'm not sure of the name of, but they fire wavelengths into your brain. Neurogenesis having to be supplemented with neuro-region-type-specific braintraining.

I don't think IA's gonna happen. Augmenting hundreds of billions of CONSTANTLY adapting neurons in a specifically programmed way? With what, nanobots? HA, better find a way to make S.I. EXTREMELY efficient on microscopic scales, WHICH IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.
