We show how the externalization of our local brain functions is leading to a planetary level intelligence, or global brain. We argue that this mechanism of externalizing cognitive functions is a fundamental driver towards an ever smarter human-machine symbiosis. We discuss implications and applications of externalizing various cognitive functions such as memory, computation, hearing, vision, brainstorming, reasoning, navigation, emotions and actions. We illustrate the scenario with a fictional… Expand
