Intelligence is just a word. It wasn't intended to differentiate human
from non human or genuine from simulated intelligence. All of our
terms - consciousness, sentience, awareness, life, etc are too loose
for these kinds of hypotheticals. It would be more appropriate maybe
to ask whether the process being offered is robotic versus adaptive,
spanning tree or neural network, etc. It's not a matter of being fake
or not, it's just a matter of how similar it's experience is to ours
and how easily we can relate the results of it's process as resembling
out own. If you give a computer program the answers to the SAT, then
it will score highly. It still has no capacity to care about it. What
we see as intelligence in a computer is our own intelligence reflected
back to us - piggybacking on the molecular unity of silicon and other
glass-like semiconductive materials. It's native intelligence is low
level - hot wires and stop-go-stop traffic lights.
