would humans be able to resiste them?
the robots start to mass produce themselves and all the cities are in ruins
could humans lead gurriela warfare aganist them?
is AI a possibly at the current state of techology, or would we need a quantum computer to get them like we are? when one thinks about it, humans are like machines themsevles.

Topics such as this border on the realm of fantasy talk and nowhere near science. But since I am interested, I'll chime:

In theory AI would enevatably take over, but that is asuming the human race lasts long enough, and is stupid enough, to create such things!

I belong to a group that does take the threat of AI seriously enough.
We have discussed a way to employ a Mutually Assured Destruction weapon to keep a balance of power between man and machines (or even advanced Human engineered biological or semi-biological entities - who may be much more resiliant to radiation)
So far the most promising "MAD" weapon idea we have agreed upon is an artificially created black hole, but it would have to be delivered in such a way as to take down the entire solar sytem rather quickly - to avoid machines from just using Mars instead of Earth for an escape route for their society.
(Something they likely would be willing to do if it came down to it)
However, we would be interested in any input those here might have on creating an alternative "MAD" device.
As we assume machines could overcome their EMP vulnerability.
