The question is too generic to have an answer. You should define what you mean by "better than humans". Currently, AI can be way better than humans at doing specific task. AI for example, was already faster and better than humans at doing math operation, but I think this is not what you meant. If you meant if AI can be one day a AGI, the answer is maybe...not even AI scientist agree on that. If you meant, "can an AI be more like a human being but more evoluted ?", the answer is another question : "how could a not enough evoluted human being create something far more evoluted than himself?".

Yamuels fully agree with you buy I think it is both risky and too early to state that AI can surely replace human beings as species. There are not even proofs AI could even be a fully reliable model for data analysis yet. Singularity still remains a pure theory. I'd rather believe AI can enhance humans as species but that also depends on the wisdom of our species and what use you make out AI. AI is currently just a tool, a very powerful tool same as Nuclear Power was a century ago...let us cross the finger and hope for the best use of it 😉

ZMindy what you said is actually what I see in AI. It is a tool whether for good or bad. Sadly there are a few problems within AI, especially in machine learning and the biggest one is that we can not really control the learning process and due to that the results of it. But even though there are many dangers within AI I have still hope thet the human race will see and avoid the threats of it. With nuclear power we have a quite similar problem: it is really powerful but everybody who says he has it under control is lying because the potential of NP is always a surprise. I think the most important thing we can and have to do is to play our role in influencing people in a way that the usage of AI becomes more responsible. As you already said it is a powerful tool that can be developed even more but the most important thing for its future is to use it in a right way. 👍🏻

AI will continue to blow and do a lot of automation no doubt. But it cannot replace human completely. Yes with sufficient and accurate data it will be better than human coding. With million, billion, trillion, quadrillion, quintillion data given it, it will supersede human programmers, though there is still a little time to that. More years for it to reach maximum maturity...

Actually it depends on the way you would specify your question. AI is in many fields already way better than human being as ZMindy already said but there are two things that make it impossible by now that AI could be better than a human being as a whole: for all the needed data there would not be enough memory at the moment and the human intelligence is actually a mixture of moral, emotion and logical intelligence (and many more fields of intelligence) and the only field that AI can manage by now is logical intelligence. I am not sure if I got the point of your question but if you meant if AI could replace humans as a species the clear answer is yes but the logical way of thinking AI uses actually would find out that they depend on human creativity, emotional knowledge and abilities and wisdom. (and here it is to mention that wisdom not always follows the rules of logic) I hope I got your question right and managed to show you my point if view on the topic.

A well-known fact: machines are becoming ever smarter thanks to artificial intelligence. Yes, machines help people, a fitting example is the aiMei app. It is an app created by BPU, which offers personality and mood analysis through a chatbot-like interface. For medical establishments, the company created a special version of the app, so that a physician can set it for a patient’s needs. But it hard to imagine machine better than human, because we created them.
