Is AI possible ? Even strong AI ?

In a debate with a colleague, the concept of Strong AI arose.
I had to look it up. Strong intelligence (stronger than human intelligence)
sounds good, but it is just science fiction unless you allow for a living 

For intelligence requires free choice (free will), and no nonliving machine has 
for one thing because machines are closed systems.  

Nor can a machine perform intentional acts, and thinking is essentially an 
intentional act.
