'Artificial intelligence could evolve to be 'billions of times smarter' than humans.
That's according to Ipswich-based 'futurist' Ian Pearson who claims that people will need to merge with machines in order to survive.
'The fact is that AI can go further than humans, it could be billions of times smarter than humans at this point,' Pearson said.
'So we really do need to make sure that we have some means of keeping up.'
Pearson, who works at Futurizon, made the comments during a panel hosted by CNBC at the World Government Summit in Dubai.
He claims humans can protect against the rise of the machines by linking their brains with AI so that they have the same IQ.
'I don't actually think it's safe, just like Elon Musk… to develop these superhuman computers until we have a direct link to the human brain… and then don't get way ahead,' he said.
Pearson's comments echo that of ex-Uber and Google engineer Anthony Levandowski who has formed the first church to follow an artificially intelligent being.
The religion, known as 'Way of the Future', claims our species can better itself by following the instructions of a robot that is 'a billion times smarter than humans'.'
