If in future, the highly intelligent machines control the world, then what would be its advantages and disadvantages? Will, those artificial intelligence powered superintelligent machines become an anathema for humanity or will they ease out the human works by guiding humans in complicated tasks, thereby extending a helping hand to the human works making them comfortable. Recent studies in theoretical computer science especially artificial intelligence predicted something called ‘technological singularity’ or the ‘intelligent explosion’ and if this happens then there can be a further stage as transfused machinery intelligence and actual intelligence where the machines being immensely powerful with a cognitive capacity more than that of humans for solving ‘immensely complicated tasks’ can takeover the humans and even the machines by more intelligent machines of superhuman intelligence. Therefore, it is troublesome and worry-full to think that ‘if in case the machines turned out against humans for their optimal domination in this planet’. Can humans have any chances to avoid them by bypassing the inevitable ‘hard singularity’ through a set of ‘soft singularity’. This paper discusses all the facts in details along with significant calculations showing humanity, how to avoid the hard singularity when the progress of intelligence is inevitable.
