Lacking from this teenager's insightful article is the place of "modern orthodoxy" within the spectrum of Torah Judaism. If changes he calls for actually take place, what is MO?

That maximum is probably correlated with the maximum number of whatsapp groups you can get the article in

https://www.cnbc.com/2017/10/25/masayoshi-son-ceo-of-softbank-robots-will-have-an-iq-of-10000.html

The idea that at some point humanity will create "Strong AI" and that may lead to catastrophy is wide spread and held by lots of very intelligent people.  It is harder to find, but a google search will turn up other seemingly intelligent people who believe strong AI is unlikely or impossible.

I have a clear religious bias that pushes in to me to the latter group (yes, I consider myself intelligent :D) but I still can't understand how a neutral unbiased thinking person can consider Strong AI as a serious possibility. Our ability to think the way we do is inseparable from our consciousness and self awareness.  Modern science cannot explain our consciousness and self awareness.  Until it can, isn't it obviously fanciful to think we can recreate anything similar to the human brain in a computer or networks of them?
