Hi, my name is Dylan,
I'm writing a paper on the general concepts and ideas of AI, If anyone would like to talk about some of their noteworthy accomplishments or express your thoughts on any of these questions below, I would be grateful, thanks.
1. what is your thoughts on a neural network(such as the one proposed by Elon Musk) and do you believe it would be beneficial or harmful?
2. What do you believe is the number one challenge to overcome involving the progress of AI?
3. Do you believe that AI will dominate our society in the future, and in what ways?
4. Do you believe AI's can really ever truly think or are they simply responding to the way they are programmed?
5. How far away, if possible, do you believe strong ai is from becoming a reality. (specifically an uncontrolled AI, that would be capable of learning anything it had access to)?
6. Do you believe that AI will ever have a potential to be harmful or have the ability to be a threat to the world?
That's all for now, Thanks in advance.

These words carry an additional burden, that is left unsaid. What will that paper be for, maybe a debate of Musk, Gates, Google and Hawking versus any alternative views, that by the pressure of the media will end with the win of Musk, Gates, Google and Hawking?

This forum is the place where supposed to be the gees for the wonderful AI ideas of Musk, Gates, Google, Hawking, et al, but here is silence.

Artificial neural networks are restricted in that they cannot model processes, or can do that in only a very restricted way.

> 2. What do you believe is the number one challenge to overcome involving the progress of AI?

To do a fundamental scientific research instead of the "applied science".

> 3. Do you believe that AI will dominate our society in the future, and in what ways?

In ideal, it will be important for the society, but not seen.

> 4. Do you believe AI's can really ever truly think or are they simply responding to the way they are programmed?

So confirm the idea that they are conventional machines, no, self-developing models are not conventional machines, think about the electronic circuit simulators for example, all that happens there cannot be "pre-programmed".

I can answer about True AI, i don't know about Strong AI, it looks like an attack against straw man. True AI can be researched, and it is a research, in that sense it is a reality today. That it would be capable of learning anything, yes that's possible, but do you understand that there is a huge gap between being capable, and doing much at all. I think it is important as a theoretical research, and extremely important as such.

> 6. Do you believe that AI will ever have a potential to be harmful or have the ability to be a threat to the world?

Do you understand how much one should assume to ask that question, and in how many questionable things does one have to believe for that? One should believe that AI is something like god, but it is not. What threat, a danger that it can enslave all people, can even humans completely enslave all people, can anyone? And people, people can use AI to fight against AI if that is necessary, doubting that they may not be capable of is doubting in any worth of the human nature. But so far, the threat has not been AI itself, but the people who use AI against other people, and so it seems to remain, in spite that these people may say that AI is responsible and the threat is AI, just so that no one can see that these people are the threat.

And, don't thank me for giving these answers, i don't know whether i like what you thank me for.

Strong AI patents are up for grabs. First come, first served.
