The question of Artificial Intelligences created by mankind becoming more intelligent and more powerful than humanity has been raised many times in science fiction. Some stories, especially highly popular ones, feature humans fighting back, resisting the machines and even winning ultimate victory in epic battles--think the Terminator movies.
Some stories have featured humans and artificial intelligences living in relative harmony--the classic example is the overall arc of Isaac Asimov's robot series. Others, especially more recent tales, speak of the "technological singularity" which can have more than one meaning, but is used by many to refer to a complete harmonization of humanity with machine, providing virtual immortality to the human race as our brains are harmonized with computers and all our thoughts can be stored and processed electronically.
I've just had a different concept of a possible future AI revolution. What if the AIs take over, in effect conquering humanity, yet are not interested in destroying us? What if they also deny us technological union with them? What if these technological minds, someday vastly superior to our own, naturally develop human emotions in spite of their greater (and artificial) intellect and quite naturally feel a great fondness for the human race who created them? What if they keep us around in our natural human state because they like us that way?
In other words, what if the future of human-AI relationships is they keep us around as house pets?
By the way, I did a google search to see if this idea of mine has occurred to anyone else. Yep, Steve Wozniak said the same thing in 2011, that artificial intelligence would make humanity into pets and there is no way to stop it. I'm not sure I agree there is no way to prevent this from happening.
Still, try this out as a story idea--the robots keep us around for companionship and amusement. Aren't those humans cute? Look at the funny things they do--this one acts like he is really in charge! They are SO fun to play with, even though they do make a mess sometimes--and don't forget how important it is to have your humans spayed and neutered...
