AI vs. synthetic intelligence

Augmented human intelligence in the future may still be weak compared to AI and synthetic intelligence. Will the true power players, AI and synthetic intelligence, fear each other and try to exterminate each other? If either is a survival threat to the other, attempted extermination would have to be assumed.

Does exterminating the perceived enemy or peaceful co-existence occur at the next upward levels of intelligence? Fear and the extermination objective will have to exist until intelligence gets away from historical animalistic tendencies. When and if animalistic survivalist tendencies are no longer useful, they will be eliminated.

Barring a clean break with historical Earth intelligence and depending on the timing of the alternative intelligence development and if emotion is a component of AI and synthetic intelligence, it may take a few battleground cycles for co-existence.
