Do you think AI is going to take over? Why and why not?

Do you think AI is going to take over? Why and why not?

I would like to say different types of AI (narrow AI?) can take over each area. (i.e. Chess, Go...) This is because what human champions of those games are doing now is similar/same to/as the AI can do. In this aspect, AI is definitely superior to human beings. Meanwhile, Single AI is inferior to human beings, at least for the time being.

Yes It will because it can reduce human error and also improve performance at a reduced cost. Hence most industries will have to apply AI

this is an excellent topic, 'what AI can do and what can Not do', in this case we use AI as amazing machines to estimate big data and to transform unstructured data to structured in a high performance way, But is there any relation of AI with the concepts of feelings or sympathies, or 'with sympathy' or social responsibility, if not it is impossible to make an AI machine for my wife to cook nice burger.

Actually there are machines which already cook better hamburgers than any human being (Rise of the Robots - Martin Ford). The book contains stunning examples of the application of AI. As wrote, robots with a specific AI can take over (not all yet, but) most of the jobs from humans. This 4th industrial revolution is different from its predecessors in the aspect that it increases the productivity on the applied field, but also increases significantly the rate of unemployment. Sure, jobs are disappearing, and new jobs are turning up, but the difference in the skillsets have become too huge and neither am I convinced that the numbers are adding up. So the real question is: how will the governments react, how will the people adopt to the changes?
The original question implies a total takeover of control. Well... enough human mistakes could be sufficient for that. Actually this scenario could save us from ourselves...

I expect the legal implications will reign it in. Whilst AI machines should be able to outperform humans in many tasks, developing laws are likely to require humans to retain ultimate control over those tasks where there is an element of risk to humans, e.g. automated cars or planes. In activities where there is little or no risk to humans (e.g.most manufacturing tasks) AI will be permitted to be more autonomous and humans are likely to take more of a backseat.
