Famed futurist Prof Michio Kaku gave his harrowing take on artificial intelligence during a Q & A session with fans on Reddit.
The US physicist outlined the evolution of robots in future, but it's absolutely terrifying.
He believes robots will eventually become so advanced they run the risk of replacing the human race.
And to stop them having "murderous thoughts" before killing us, humans will need to act fast and chip them with preventive technology.
A user asked the renowned author: "Professor Michio Kaku, my question to you is will artificial intelligence eventually render human labor and intelligence obsolete?
"If so, in what areas can human excel at that machine learning algorithms and can not?"
His chilling response read: "Right now, robots have the intelligence of a bug.
"They can barely walk across a room. Simple tasks done by humans – picking up garbage, fixing a toilet, building a house, solving a crime – are way beyond what a robot can do.
"But, as the decades go by, they will become as smart as a mouse, then rat, then a cat, dog, and monkey.
"By that point, they might become dangerous and even replace humans, near the end of the century.
"So I think we should put a chip in their brain to shut them off if they have murderous thoughts."
And Prof Kaku also warned that humans may be left with no choice but to merge with robots.
He added: "But what happens centuries from now, when robots can evade even our most sophisticated fail safe system?
"At that point, I think we should merge with them.
"This may sound strange to some people, but remember that it is the people of the far future (not us) who will decide how far they want to modify themselves to deal with super smart robots."
Daily Star Online previously revealed how robots may replace human coaches in the NFL.
Ex-rocket scientist Dr Ian Pearson told us that AI will offer better tactical plays than the human mind.
But the AI engineer believes the NFL will seek to prevent the technology being used, by banning radio signals and mobile phones.
