That's what the singularity is all about. So say we build an
A.I. that is roughly equal to a human being in intelligence. The
A.I. would then decide to upgrade itself, perhaps making itself
2x as smart as a human being. It would then use it's greater
intelligence to even further increase it's intelligence to say
like 4x that of a human being. Eventually it would increase at
an exponential rate until it reaches a god-like level of
intelligence.

From that point on mankind is no longer the driving intelligence
of planet earth. All the new great inventions are being made by
machines, not by humans.

It's also possible that an A.I. would design successive
generations of intelligent machines. This is the scenario I
favor, with an A.I. giving rise to untold forms of intelligent
machines, branching out in an artificial form of evolution.

As far as being "cold and dispassionate 'rulers'", I think you
might be surprised. If an A.I. ever began to look at organic
beings as resources or something to emulate, then it just may
produce beings that are indistinguishable from a human being for
example.An A.I. could theoretically create beings that we would
not necessarily recognize as being machines or part machines,
such as the occupants of UFOs for example.

So so with our "friends" above, some look at them and
automatically assume they are organic species like us, but from
elsewhere. I do not share that view. I look at a drawing of the
classic Gray or the perfected Nordic and I see artificial
beings, perhaps cyborgs, perhaps machines designed to perfectly
emulate human beings. The telepathy gives it away for me. I
ponder telepathy and the easiest explanation is that we are
dealing with technology that is somehow a part of the beings and
not a naturally evolved ability of any organic species.
