Will robots eventually take over the world & invade our lives? will they be the next weapon of mass destruction in wars?

Repeated statements have been made by many educated people around the globe that if we continue to make robots ever more intelligent, self aware, smart, powerful, & emotional driven, could they eventually take over and enslave us? Certainly, computer-driven systems can solve mathematical questions far faster than we. We can make them stronger than the individual, and certainly the robotic arms in an auto factory can be dangerous to the worker there. They could even become so small as to be breathed into our lungs and travel all through us. And we fly ones that kill or assisentate enemy civilians. but will they reach the point where they can master over their creators, will we witness a real life version of "I, Robot" movie.
