Why is that we always attribute AI to present day programming constructs and say how tuff it is to program... May be in the future we will have memory and processors mimicing the human brain.. Already we have a lot of research going on in the feild of Neural technology...... I think real AI is around 250 to 300 years away..

Real AI??? 100 years? I don't know about that. Maybe I over stated with 1000's, but not 100 years tops. I mean how can you program artificial memory. It would takes 10's - 100's of thousands of if statements, lol :cool:
Anyways, I agree, even if no new programs were ever created, all the old software would have to be upgraded.
Software development and programming is expected to be one of the most in demand jobs through 2010 and far beyond according to a lot of analysts. If you want a more secure future, being a programmer is definately one way to do it.
