It always makes me laugh a little when I see films about the evil AI who aim to exterminate humanity. I would think that if programming was that advanced, then it would be extensive enough to prevent any possibility of barbaric murder.
Technology is our present and future and it's only helped us thus far, there's no reason to be fearful of it advancing. We have complete control over technology and always will; the intelligence of our computers is measured by the intelligence of our scientists.
Humans maintain complete control and always will. Whenever your computer comes up saying you don't have the required permission, it's only two clicks away from wiping that data entirely.
As for the article, I read it, I have nothing much to say on it.
