The interesting thing for me is not when real AI will appear but what the implications will be.
Isaac Asimov books are fascinating on these.

Implications will depend greatly on when it appears, too... (and what state the world will be in: resource availability, now also for AIs - how plentiful or maybe war torn in competition for them; enlightened secular or mostly ~theocracies; and so on)

In all, a bit unpredictable - and works of popular fiction tend to be no better than background noise at predicting future.
Asimov books dealing with AI can be even seen as a bit naive - around the time when he was writing them, we already had robots meant solely to kill (ICBMs probably being the most ultimate example), also largely autonomously (Russian Perimetr / Dead Hand system)
