Smart robots make smarter robots who make even smarter robots in an exponential fashion. We have no way of knowing what will happen at that point. The ultra-smart robots will make decisions on a level we can't comprehend. We just have to hope they're friendly...... but be prepared if they're not......

Wikipedia Article
