by 2080 there will be "hyper intelligent" computers. and there should be humans that are more non-biological than biological. these upgrades will have been implemented over time and taken for granted, much like all technology we use today.
before the year 2100 androids will be apart of society. by 2120 they will be indistinguishable physically from humans.
but of course by then many humans will be some sort of cyborg. with AI vastly boosting our brains.
i don't think there's anything to be afraid of. except ourselves. cyborgs will of course deem themselves superior to purist humans (the few that choose to not become cyborgs).

For decades, scientists have dreamed of building computer systems that could replicate the human brainís talent for learning new tasks.
MIT researchers have now taken a major step toward that goal by designing a computer chip that mimics how the brainís neurons adapt in response to new information. This phenomenon, known as plasticity, is believed to underlie many brain functions, including learning and memory.
