I'm looking for a word for sentient beings that are smarter than ordinary human beings. This word should at least include the following:
- Geniuses with artificially enhanced intelligence
- Alien lifeforms that are smarter than normal human beings
- A.I.s that are smarter than normal human beings
The words "overmind" and "posthuman" have come to my mind, but "overmind" seems to be generally understood as "being controlling other beings", while "posthuman" doesn't include super-smart aliens.
Edit: Fixed misleading wording.
