Machines have won the war and the human race is destined to become little more than house pets.
That’s the future according to one of the smartest geeks on the planet, Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple Computers and is convinced that in his lifetime he will see computer intelligence equal that of humans.
The Woz is to the technological world what The Fonz was to leather jackets and denim, and when he talks, the global industry listens.

As technology explodes, humans are not going to be needed so much in the future and will settle back into a life of ease, Mr Wozniak told a business congress on the Gold Coast on Friday.
“We’re already creating the superior beings, I think we lost the battle to the machines long ago,” he said.
“We’re going to become the pets, the dogs of the house.”
He said all of a sudden, true artificial intelligence will creep up on mankind like an accident.
“Every time we create new technology we’re creating stuff to do the work we used to do and we’re making ourselves less meaningful, less relevant.
“Why are we going to need ourselves so much in the future? We’re just going to have the easy life,” he said.
Mr Wozniak said Singularity, where a machine seems like a human being and has feelings, can think and be motivated, seemed an impossible dream to him years ago.
