"... the human race might easily permit itself to drift into a position of such dependence on the machines that it would have no practical choice but to accept all of the machines decisions. As society and the problems that face it become more and more complex and machines become more and more intelligent, people will let machines make more of their decision for them, simply because machine-made decisions will bring better result than man-made ones. Eventually a stage may be reached at which the decisions necessary to keep the system running will be so complex that human beings will be incapable of making them intelligently. At that stage the machines will be in effective control. People won't be able to just turn the machines off, because they will be so dependent on them that turning them off would amount to suicide."
Michio Kaku says we will all join with machines. To me, that appears spell out extinction for the human species.
Count down to human extinction...

It’s only a question of time before artificial brains overtake
our biological brains and become selfaware.
Within a decade we should be able to
assemble an artificial brain with the same
level of complexity and connectivity as the
Should humans build machines that could take over the world?

Humans are becoming intimately merged with machines
The line between man and machine is starting to blur. Later this century, there will no longer be a clear distinction.
Humans will become extinct within the next few centuries.
The holdouts who refuse technological upgrades will be kept in a human zoo for their own protection, and they will be watched over by the machines.
