I was wrong.
According to my own definition of intelligence-- that it is the
ability of an entity, having at least some measure of free will,
to make choices on its own (without outside help)-- a
computer can have intelligence, and intelligence in no small measure.
The ability to sort is an example. To give a simple example, a
computer can sort information, just as Maxwell's Demon could,
into two bins. Instead of temperature, it could just be a number.
Numbers larger than A go into one bin, smaller than A go
into another bin. It does it all on its own, using an "if" statement.
