So he is saying that the machines take over in 2040. Great. Hope I am around to see that. I'll be in my 70's. Should start seeing a terminator soon. Gotta find John Connor before it is too late.
Its possible, but I'd say its unlikely. More likely we will evolve as a species into homosuperior. As he puts it, it will want to spread itself into the very fabric of the world and the universe itself, and thus we'll become infinitely more intelligent by doing that.
Plus he's not saying that machines are going to kill us, just fricking over our own resources or nuking each other into an oblivion would do it.
