It will grow and increase its control over the actual human population.
To the extent that it needs humans, we will survive.
To the extent that we are problematic - we will go away.
Simple as that.

Technological Singularity is a big hoped for event among some.
Feasible trans humanism, post-humanism, or other alternatives are also certainly looked for whether they come through machine technologies or bio-tech.

The problem with most future forecasting is that it is done with a linear perspective on history. For example, reasoning went in the 1960s: Cars are popular now, so I bet by the year 2010, we will have flying cars. Likewise, we've just landed on the moon, so I bet by 2010 we will all be able to visit the moon.
But as we have increasingly come to realise, Black Swan events come along and radically change all of our preconceptions.
Here are 4 black swans that could completely alter the shape of humanity by the year 2100:
Radical life extension

Personally I think that if just one of those events came to pass, it would fundamentally alter human reality in such a way that we wouldn't recognise the world in 100 years time.

Any of the above would be amazing and I agree they would change things in huge ways, I also think there is a progression to the list you provided, that one scenario could possibly lead to an acceleration of any of the others.
