Human beings as individuals are not very intelligent. If we think about a person growing up in the wild devoid of education and culture, we cannot expect them to progress to a fraction of where civilization is today. Instead, humans function best as a component of society.
Human beings are a planning and execution component in society. We have a mix of computing power in our brains as well as mobility and actuation through our motor systems. Our ability to calibrate with society and then function independently is also highly valued.
Since human beings are still one of the preeminent building blocks of advanced life, we need to look at ways to continue to enhance that connection that individuals have with society. Since computing is becoming the larger connecting piece between different pieces of society, our connection to computing becomes ever more important.
The malleability of the human mind allows individuals to exist in our bodies, but also think and act as a proxy for more abstract systems.
Devices that allow us to see the world represented differently and then transmit that action back is necessary to continue our ability to act abstractly. Reducing the cost of building those models and having to manually visualize abstract spaces will greatly enhance the amount of complexity, nuance, and speed with which an individual can act.
