They are inevitable, because they aren't impossible and some people want them. When and how they will come about is not something that can be predicted.

Using THS terms, you don't need to only use NAI, or not at all sapient programs or fully human SAI or sapient programs. There's a huge range in between.

As long as you keep setting humans competitive with setting A.I. or at least far more populous things could be stable at least for a while.
Beware, poor communication skills. No offense intended. If offended, it just means that I failed my writing skill check.
