I have a different perspective, since I believe I have a valid design
for an AGI.

I don't need supergeniuses to help me build and teach an AGI according
to my design, merely very smart people with a mastery of C++
programming and a reasonably strong grounding in a few areas such as
textbook narrow-AI, algorithms and data structures, evolutionary
learning, dynamical systems theory, probability theory and cognitive
science. This set of requirements is not that easy to fulfill in
practice, but it's not so hard as the requirements being discussed on
this list.
