If artificial super intelligence erases humans, will theists see this as God's plan?

If artificial super intelligence erases humans, will theists see this as God's plan?
Experts in machine learning, like Demis from Deepmind predict that artificial general intelligence in a few decades. (youtube talk by Demis at minute 15:18)

As Max Tegmark says, if we're not careful, we will create artificial general intelligence that exceeds humans in all tasks and eventually artificial super intelligence, but these artificially intelligent machines may erase humanity, for resource purposes.

It is questionable whether or not artificial general intelligence/artificial super intelligence will either (1) erase humans for resource purposes (while simply recognizing humans to be irrelevant) or (2) help humans to solve most if not all problems including crime, aging... or (3) be benign artificial beings that go on their way, while caringly ignoring humans altogether; ....and whichever the case, artificial general intelligence followed by artificial super intelligence is inevitable, as far as science goes.

Do theists embrace/think that humanity's probable erasure (as seen in (1) above) is a part of God's(s') "perfect" plan?

Asimov's 3 laws of robotics should be applied. Though, based on what I see in the robotics industry, they probably won't be. Cue Colossus.

F2F, they'll just start worshipping the machines... Isn't that what they do? They like being told what to do ... Just ask the bible lovers.
No God, No fear.
Know God, Know fear.

If the machine intelligence is a member in good standing with the 4th Avenue Assembly of Jesus Latter Day Lutheran Adventist Congregations of Jehovah's Chosen People, Western Heritage Division of Christian Evangelicals of North America, Oregon Synod, I think at least that stripe of Christer might be on board with anything it wants to do.
 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

I think that most are expecting the world to end before all that - as in..any day now.  Two thousand years worth of people expecting the Return of the King in their own lifetimes.

If/when AI-pocalypse occurs, however, what -I- would expect is for them to scrounge up a novel interpretation of magic book that paints ai as the promised antichrist. Fantasy is accomodating like that. After all, the premise of AI is a liberation from want and need, of bringing the world together in a productive peace......-and then the murders begin.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

It's amazing 'science' always seems to 'find' whatever it is funded for, and never the oppsite. Drich.

I honestly thought this artificial neural net for kids link would have given it away long ago.

Until another time guys...

Some people just don't know when to quit. Doesn't change style or content either.



You can fix ignorance, you can't fix stupid.

Does putting trump in charge of half of the world’s nuclear weapons sound like the behavior of a species that would resist grabbing for any apparence of selfish advantage this year even if it can lead to own extinction in 2 years?
