Note. This is an incompletely developed train of thought.
The path to artificial (general) intelligence will involve the entire human race. The achievement of AGI could be as mysterious as the distinction between the brain and mind. When AGI is attained it will be the sum of all of us, participating in its evolution and action. Each human mind, each human contribution, would be like atoms in molecules in cells in neurons in a collective brain generating a collective intelligence. There will not be an evil AI which destroys us because when we achieve AGI, it will be a part of us as much as we are a part of it.
