Dude, Opencourseware is not something which gives you a phd.
am a noted math and AI whiz,
Cool...what have you published? Where? On what topics? Just give us anything we can look up on the uni's subscriptions.
program in no less than seven languages (one of which I wrote, from scratch)
Which programming language have you written?
have several publications
Again, which ones? It's a very simple fucking question with a very simple fucking answer. Any acedemic when asked the question will gleefully link to his/her research. That's what they do...it's a function of doing research. You though have yet to offer a single link, a single bit of proof.
And patents are a matter of money and application...no props there. IP the same...everything I write is my IP. The real question is, is the IP worth anything.
