Michael Korns coined the tern 'inloading' at Extro5 for the approach of
adding artificial neurons to live humans to upgrade them. He sees inloading
as a more likely, and preferable path to human super-intelligence. It is
incremental, and less shocking than uploading - and will probably also be
easier to achieve.
Inloading involves gradually adding silicon/ nanotube/ quantum?! (or
whatever) artificial neurons & connection to our brains, together will some
technology to transmit all relevant information to an external computer for
backup. Eventually, artificial neurons would vastly outnumber original ones.
I don't actually buy into this scenario for a number of reasons, some of
which are here: http://www.optimal.org/peter/hyperintelligence.htm
But I like the meme: inloading - less threatening than uploading. 'Simply'
the enhancement of brain function, but ultimately the same result

>The suggestion I was trying to make (and not doing so very well) was that
the attainment of super-intelligence may be easier to achieve through human
augmentation rather than starting from scratch with today's machines.
... . However, I think that such a course is unfeasible both from the
moralist perspective and also from a technical perspective....
