The extensive neural network consists of over 16,000 computers and can learn things all on its own.
New York Times said:
Inside Google’s secretive X laboratory, known for inventing self-driving cars and augmented reality glasses, a small group of researchers began working several years ago on a simulation of the human brain.

A computer that will have a desire to take over the world is Science Fiction. Work like this pushes back the capabilities of what machines will be able to do in the future and is (in my eyes) therefore necessary.
Machines are not self aware (as humans are), they do not have desires (like taking over the world). They maybe be ale to simulate these needs (desires and feelings etc) but they are simulations. A computer may learn but it will not have a true desire for power or self preservation and therefore will not take over (SkyNet or iRobot style).
It might be time to worry when human life is extended through a direct link from the brain to computers, once human emotion is involved then we might see computers that want to take over the world.
I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything.
Yeah, what happens when it learns humans are basically a parasite and a threat to nearly everything? Said computer could form a desire to protect itself from it's own eventual demise, hence Skynet people, Skynet.
