If the machines are permitted to make all their own decisions, we can't make any conjectures as to the results,
because it is impossible to guess how such machines might behave. We only point out that the fate of the human
race would be at the mercy of the machines. It might be argued that the human race would never be foolish
enough to hand over all the power to the machines. But we are suggesting neither that the human race would
voluntarily turn power over to the machines nor that the machines would willfully seize power. What we do
suggest is that the human race might easily permit itself to drift into a position of such dependence on the machines
that it would have no practical choice but to accept all of the machines' decisions. As society and the problems
that face it become more and more complex and machines become more and more intelligent, people will let
machines make more of their decisions for them, simply because machine-made decisions will bring better results
than man-made ones. Eventually a stage may be reached at which the decisions necessary to keep the system
running will be so complex that human beings will be incapable of making them intelligently. At that stage the
machines will be in effective control. People won't be able to just turn the machines off, because they will be so
dependent on them that turning them off would amount to suicide.

On the other hand it is possible that human control over the machines may be retained
