Very interesting thoughts. I think it's not a matter of if they will surpass us but when. And we're already seeing this in certain domains but this is mostly narrow AI. We're talking about general intelligence and then things might get hairy. I'm an optimist by nature but we do need to be very careful and the thing is, we don't know how to be careful with this one. We don't know what to expect.
And it's not like we can stop evolution either. As someone said, we may be remembered as that species that made AI possible..
