Nano-technology that can gene edit already exists and is being developed to repair mitochondrial DNA errors. It could further edit this very complex human source code to change material structures I suppose.

Thing is, we have no idea what kind of temperament an A.I would have,
Yes we do. We program it.
especially if the A.I could actually think for itself and ignore it programming.
It runs on programming. If it "ignores it", then it shuts off.
It would ether wipe out or enslave humanity, be fair and just to humanity, or if A.I was based on our behavior, be just like humanity.
An A.I can get to powerful to control, it will be watching like it were a Jealous Heathen God...All the time.
Every geek worth their title knows where the "off switch" is for everything... and where the "god mode cheat code" is. AI will have those.
