A revolution in intelligence is underway.
The machines, they tell us, are getting smarter. Not a day goes by where we don't hear of the coming revolution in Artificial Intelligence (AI), a revolution that will change our world in ways we can still only faintly imagine. If we use AI wisely, it has the promise to make human life better in many ways.
Machine intelligence also holds the promise of enhancing, or augmenting, human intelligence, a symbiosis that in reality has already begun. The recent announcement of Neuralink, Elon Musk's latest moonshot, provides a glimpse of where it is going.
Be it in 10 or 100 years, it seems a virtual certainty that, at some point in the future, the human and machine brain will merge. When it does, human cognition will take a giant leap.
Our dream of being able to download knowledge instantaneously, once relegated to the realm of science fiction, will be realized.
A Bird in the Hand
But there's another type of intelligence revolution underway as well, one that's often overshadowed by AI's seductive appeal.
Every human, under his or her nose (or, more accurately, behind), already possesses a rich well of cognitive horsepower, the full potential of which we've only begun to explore, or even appreciate.
Realizing that potential requires an understanding of how to optimize human brain health and function at every level of organization, from cellular health and molecular signaling, to the creation and operation of neural networks governing learning and creativity. Emerging insights from these various fields of study, when understood and applied effectively, can provide all of us a manual for explosive cognitive growth and performance.
Creating that manual is the mission of the Optimal Brain.
