The victory of AlphaGo against Lee Sedol in March 2016 is a new milestone in Artificial Intelligence history, next one might be the mass adoption of self-driving cars or the generalized use of chatbots. These successes both raise expectations and increase the fear of an Artificial Intelligence getting out of control, which is now addressed in books and scientific papers.  

Even though some other human capabilities like natural language are still way beyond machine's reach, the fear of this "control problem" is sometimes intensified by the assumption that human intelligence will be at some point surpassed in all domains by machines even if it is a controverse whether human elementary abilities like subjective experience, consciousness, moral values are even theoretically transferable to computers.
