Intelligent Agent: aka "software agent".
Software that can do things without supervision, because it knows your
patterns, history, preferences, likes, dislikes, and so forth. You want to go
on holiday - it knows that you really enjoyed that trip to Hawaii, and that you
prefer to fly at night, 1st class. It also knows that the bungalow you rented
last time was marked as being 5-star, and worth a re-visit. Your IA then
collates all your parameters, searches the internet for flights, car rentals,
restaurant reservations, and lodgings, and schedules everything for you, with
options on the side. No more travel agent - you have a software agent to handle
things! Many experts agree that by 2010 we will each have one, and that they
will greatly reduce our daily load of trivial and redundant tasks. See Is There an Intelligent
Agent in Your Future?.
IA: Intelligence Amplification: Technologies seeking to increase the cognitive abilities of people.
Immune Machines: Medical nanomachines designed for internal use, especially in the bloodstream and digestive tract, able to identify and disable intruders such as bacteria and viruses.
IMP: Electronic implant, especially in the brain. (Ron Hale Evans)
In cyto: -- within a biological cell.
In nucleo: -- within the nucleus of a cell.
In sanguo: -- within the bloodstream.
Inline Universities: (as opposed to online universities), nanocomputer implants serving to increase intelligence and education of their owners, essentially turning them into walking universities (Max M. Rasmussen)
