I kind of mentioned it in the @leomarkettalk but yes I see ourselves merging with machines. I see no reason why people won't choose to become better using AI to our advantage.
As for stopping AI research? I don't think it will happen because whoever doesn't use it will be at a disadvantage.
I think it also be possible for people to just take a backseat as well. At least with the current landscape of people, I can definitely see it since there are too many people who don't even verify what they hear and just follow whatever the news tells them.
