Are we closer to a machine-driven apocalypse,ironically created by humans? Suppose to some extent it depends on our definition of a machine?

Update:

which likely includes autonomous ones, but could also include multi-scale machines, driven initially by human intervention or triggers.

    Automation has replaced human jobs for decades. Robots are intially expensive, but a far better long term investment than any human resource: no vacations, unions, disability, sexual harassment lawsuits, etc.

    Robots are perfect for replacing workers on the farm, food processing and manufacturing, especially highly repetitive work like automotive, electronic, or otherwise dangerous.

    However, some jobs a machine will never be able to do or at the very least will require some human assistance particularly in the healthcare and mental health fields.

    I think robots pose a greater threat to humanity in the form of organs and limb replacement especially with the promise of indefinite life extension.

      Not quite sure what you are saying in your final paragraph- are you saying robots could withhold human organ replacement?
