For the future, automakers are thinking of vehicles as a service. The trend is to have more chauffeurs for ride sharing services, such as Uber, and automakers will want a slice of the car sharing market. Self-driving cars are an expensive technology and not many people can afford it.

Once they solve the ethics questions for self-driving cars, then sure. For example, if the car is forced to swerve, should it hit a car or a cyclist? Then who is responsible? Until then, humans drivers are here to stay.

There are already self-driving cars. Add some form of system to recognize potential passengers and a way for them to pay and you have an AI taxi driver
