Can AI trigger human evolution?

As my last blog said that AI can be more efficient than humans. Can it overpower human race?
Evolution is basically depends on the formula of “survival of the fittest” with extreme change in environmental and biological conditions. But can evolution be done because of massive upgradation of some other kind of intelligence?
Well if AI gonna rule for the next generations, it has massive probability that AI might overpower humans. AI gonna take over all the jobs such as economy, defence, technology, transportation and communication. So we can call it drastic changes. AI is taking control over every field and humans will lose their work.
Updation and adaptability is the key to survive. If someone is not adapting, it is obvious that he/she won’t be able to survive. Same is the situation of AI overpowering humans.
If a technology is proving itself better than us, then it is prime time to update ourselves. We have to make ourself more efficient. We have to develop skills which makes us better than machines. Those skills which machines can’t possess.
Updation is necessary for survival. And updation is very much possible. Humans on an average, aren’t using even 1 percent of the abilities of their brain. So still we got more than 99 percent to upgrade. There is so much room of improvement.
Eventually this improvement will lead to evolution. Gradually human race will increase their abilities. Humans will undergo biological changes too by that. And eventually, we might evolve to superhumans(Being a bit more ambitious).
Another question arises that can AI taking control over different sectors be destructive. So my opinion about that is, if the algorithms are correct, it will healthy as well as efficient. But if algorithms go wrong, then… then…, it might be more than destructive.
