I have not read everyone's post here, but what you seem to be indirectly discussing is The Singularity. If you are interested,
is a link to the Wikipedia page. The Singularity posits notions both more complex and more tangible than the ones presented in the OP.
That's what I want to hear, someone who also loves non-sentient objects.
This thread is based on a time immediately prior to the singularity to make it a bit more thought provoking. I mean if AI had surpassed human intelligence to an extent, there are complications that come in to play which we can't begin to fathom. That's only because after the singularity we have no idea what to expect.
That video however is interesting, terrifyingly interesting. It makes me hate commercialism even more.
