AI, Robots: Where are humans in it?

Humans are the only creatures that are working towards making themselves redundant and that is the IRONY of today. Artificial Intelligence systems capture the intellect of humans by using algorithms written by humans. Humans are the creators, preservers and destroyers of these systems. We are at the cusp of a socio-economic phenomenon – the landscape of businesses and everyday life will look like a mesh of humans and robots where there will be no line that separates the two. Where one fails, the other takes over or better (or worse still), if a robot fails, a robot takes over with no human intervention. With multifold advances in technology and automation combined with human intellect, life as we see it is going through a metamorphosis that raises the question.. Are humans becoming robotic and robots becoming human-like?
