Abstract
The criteria for identifying technical systems with artificial intelligence (AI) as a specific type of subject are described. The process of making AI machines more complicated is interpreted as the process of making a technosubject. The evolution of AI is considered to be a form of technical evolution stimulating the evolution of Homo sapiens. The co-evolution of human beings and technosubjects has two probable vectors of the development. The first is the complete substitution of man by technosubjects resulting in the emergence of a new form of sociality - technosociety. The second is the emergence of a hybrid society, based on the symbiosis of two subject species to evolve: a bio-cybernetic kind of human and a technosubject with AI. At present, robots, algorithms for big data processing, e-learning programs, genetically programmed AI-agents, Internet of things, industrial Internet, AI-based mobile communication devices represent species of technosubjects and hybrid society proto-actors. At the same time, the new kind of interaction in a social system produces the bio-machine hybrid kind of man, which is currently represented by individuals with modified body parts and their physical and mental functions enhanced through implanted electronic devices.
