They're not going away because the advertisers want them (even ad networks other than Google use them) and if Facebook ever decides to make its own ad network, you're gonna see em to the nth degree.
Contextual ads will always be around to some degree, but personalized, interest based and retargeting ads are the future. If you're gonna do AdSense, you're gonna see em.
(I don't think the retargeting ads count under the interest based option in our consoles anyway. it's really a different thing)
