I have a huge problem with patenting aspects of artificial intelligence
architectures. This radically slows down research and development which
means it puts fences on the intellectual commons that impoverish us all.
It makes no more sense (and arguably less) than patenting the human
genome. Please point us to the relevant patent application. I hope you
have not tried to patent this node and link approach as many have
thought of it and worked with it independently.
