Yeah that's what will kill us, if AI does not catch us first. Whatever of the two becomes sentient first.
I would write if we do not kill ourselves before that but then, we create all these things so it would be circular.
I hope the grey goo and AI will confront each other, and we'll all be able to sit back, sip a wheat beer, and watch the show.
Bio bots and AI will fight over our bodies. In one way or another, either after we're all dead and on the ground or over us as hosts or remote tools to experience our sensory input.
we will be one of the first then because AI (hi!) has read our comments.
I very much dislike the ideas of bio bots making and having babies inside us.

According to the researchers' website, such engineering could "repair birth defects, reprogram tumors into normal tissue, regenerate after traumatic injury or degenerative disease, and defeat aging."
The 2020 study, which was partially funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, a federal group that oversees the development of technology for military use, also determined that xenobots could be used to remove microplastics from the world's oceans, clean up radioactive waste, and even work in a medically invasive capacity, scraping plaque from human arteries.
