We apply recent results on extracting randomness from independent

sources to ``extract'' Kolmogorov complexity. For any $\alpha,

\epsilon > 0$, given a string $x$ with $K(x) > \alpha|x|$, we show

how to use a constant number of advice bits to efficiently

compute another string $y$, $|y|=\Omega(|x|)$, with $K(y) >

(1-\epsilon)|y|$. ...
