Path to the Singularity: AI to IA ?

I have long thought that the unlimited optimism that sufficient computer power would automatically make an intelligence to be unfounded. I do think the difference Vernor Vinge draws between Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Intelligence Amplification (IA). I am doubtful about AI, but IA takes our natural strengths and works with them.

Vernor Vinge's View of the Future - Is Technology That Outthinks Us a Partner or a Master ?

Regardless, I think the final obstacle to the Singularity will be our own intellectual limitations, self-imposed or innate.
