Will The Singularity Make Humans More Machine-like?

We are on the verge of the exciting era when human intelligence and machines will converge in The Singularity.  This union will combine our biological components with non-biological devices as technology makes our intelligence trillions of times faster and stronger.  Do you think humans will become more machine-like with less human emotions, or will machines become more human-like with more emotions?  Or is there a common ground?

Interesting that you assume it's a marriage of human and machine rather than parallel lives, more of a competition. Then I'd ask whether the machines would inevitably become smarter. And I'm sure Rollo would muse that the droids will never be truly smarter until one can win an argument with a woman!
