Would artificial intelligence and singularity mean the end of humanity?

The Turing test states if a human can not tell a human from a computer then as far as intelligence is concerned there's no difference between a human and a computer. If one can not tell a simulation from reality then there's no difference.

And the Chinese room thought experiment is a good example of how the Turing test is wrong on that count.

Regardless the problem with your proposal is not whether or not a faultless simulation is possible but why you would think that there is a logical chain between "AI observing everyone" and "matrix-style simulation."

Seems like a good place to close.
