The AI threat
"...The machine that learned to play Go better than any human being does not know how to play Poker..."

Succinctly put.

"...true, creative, human-like artificial intelligence, what is sometimes referred to as artificial general intelligence..."

Artificial general intelligence will be my main takeway from this article.  Again, like I mentioned before in the comments here, until computer scientists have an elegant algorithm to explain René Descartes' "I think, therefore I am", I will not believe the AI threat to humanity's existence has arrived.
