The problem is that AI's definition is essentially "anything that seems smart" and under that definition, bad game AI fits. Deep Learning is not AI, and has no path to strong AI. Most current AI research has no path to strong AI. Academic AI has almost given up on strong AI, and has taken a detour in demonstrating weak AI on stronger computers that looks like stronger AI, when the AI is no better, but the weak AI is faster.

And you put everyone with an opinion you don't like into the "imbeciles" group. By reasonable measure, that puts you in the imbecile group.
