    Greetings.

    Would you kindly tell me the difference between the following?especially I am confused with their differences.

    Intelligence amplification

    Intelligence augmentation

    Moreover, if I am right, would you please explain each part and give me some example about each one?(what does here mean external and internal?)


    1. Intelligence augmentation has made of two parts(external and internal)

    2. Intelligence amplification has made of two parts(external and internal)
    ...........................
    I have found some sources but somehow I can understand...:

    In addition, what are cognitive augmentation and Cognitive amplification? what is the difference between these?

    What does similar man–made interactions which have the functional effect of augmenting
    human intelligence mean?


    Cascio states that humans have been externally augmenting their intelligence for
    millennia. By developing written language, we boosted our capacity to share information over
    10 space and time. Other advancements, such as agricultural and industrial technologies, reduced
    the exigencies of manual labor. Current external digital systems augment human intelligence by
    allowing us to perform tasks that would be unfeasible with recourse only to the rational skills of
    a singular human brain. Cascio cites as examples the “powerful simulations and massive data
    sets (which) allow physicists to visualize, understand, and debate models of an 11–dimension
    15 universe, real–time data from satellites, global environmental databases, and high–resolution
    models (which) allow geophysicists to recognize the subtle signs of long–term changes to the
    planet,” and similar man–made interactions which have the functional effect of augmenting
    human intelligence.

    I wonder the reason why externally?so, what does By developing written language, we boosted our capacity to share information over
    space and time mean?

    It is external because humans haven't actually changed their brains to become more intelligent.
    A written language allowed us to share information over time because we could read books written by a person a long time ago. This would be much more difficult with just a spoken language. A book can be carried from one place to another. That is what is meant by sharing information over space.

    Hey, I assume English not your first language. The Google Book by Allen says that Intelligence amplification was an idea from the 1950s, and augmentation an idea appearing later, in the 1960s. He says intelligence amplification is a standalone machine to solve a problem, while augmentation involves the human being empowered by a machine to solve the problem.

    So an example of amplification would be a machine where you give it a very hard math problem, and it solves it on its own. An example of augmentation would be maybe a set of theorems, and calculator tools, that empowers the human to better solve the math problem.

    And, what about external and internal about these?
