The human race is destined to become little more than house pets in future, according to Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
Wozniak is also convinced that in his lifetime he will see computer intelligence equal that of humans.
Addressing a business congress in Gold Coast, Australia, today, Wozniak said: “We’re already creating the superior beings, I think we lost the battle to the machines long ago.”
“We’re going to become the pets, the dogs of the house,” he added.
The 60-year-old believes that true artificial intelligence will creep up on mankind like an accident.
“Every time we create new technology we’re creating stuff to do the work we used to do and we’re making ourselves less meaningful, less relevant,” The Herald Sun quoted Wozniak, as saying.
“Why are we going to need ourselves so much in the future? We’re just going to have the easy life,” he added.
