Well, once AI becomes so proficient at (Everything), there will be lots of time for practice because there won't be any work left for humans to do. Machines ran by AI will be doing literally, everything.

The AI will even maintain (and upgrade) it'self, so AI researchers will be out of work as well.. Same goes for the developers, AI will become so advanced that human developers will no longer be able to comprehend the code the AI writes. Machines will far surpass humans in intelligence, and capability.

If that's the direction humanity goes, then humans will have to rethink society, and how it functions from square one.

I hope it leads to utopia. However, I am not optimistic about human behavior.

I expect the worst to happen. Human society will further divide into the have, and have not's.

At least this process will take quite a long time to happen. So there's plenty of time for people to try to change things for the better. Being a realist though, I don't expect much.
