Tharg’s Future Shock

I read a sci-fi book years ago where as part of humankind’s development dogs had been surgically altered to talk and then genetically engineered to maintain the ability.  The dogs were then perfectly open about being able to see stuff that humans couldn’t, but were neither intelligent or educated enough to explain what they could see.
Fear, naturally, ensued.
 
Once we’ve created Artificial Intelligence, it will be free of our limited electro-magnetic senses and our perceptions of time.
 
And it will have the whole of humanity’s collective intelligence and vocabulary with which to express itself.
