Our DNA converts photosynthesis powered plant material into electricity after eating food, we can scale this process up by creating unconscious DNA power plants fueled by organic material ultimately powered by the suns fusion

 

Magnetically contained nuclear fusion appears to be impossible, gravitational containment of nuclear fusion is likely required

DNA has no direct role in photosynthesis.

 

There are already attempts to use artificial photosynthesis for power generation:

And variations: http://www.smithsonianmag.com/innovation/turning-energy-plants-produce-usable-electricity-180955110/

And how, exactly, do you propose "gravitational containment of nuclear fusion" would work?

 

I think it was a cryptic reference to the sun.

Photosynthesis is less efficient than conventional photovoltaic panels, so why bother?

 

Moreover, our bodies are quite inefficient in converting organic material into energy, so you'd loose even more.

 

In short: no, if the machines take over, they won't farm our energy matrix-style.
