At one time everybody on the planet agreed that solving equations, playing a great game of chess, being a superb research librarian, or winning at Jeopardy required intelligence; but when computers got better at those tasks than humans suddenly they didn't require intelligence anymore. It seems that the definition of "intelligence" is whatever computers still aren't good at, and thus the number of tasks that require "intelligence" shrinks rather dramatically every year. Right now image recognition still requires intelligence and is a key to our humanity, but in 10 years, possibly 5, that will all change and Roger B Clough will be saying that image recognition has absolutely nothing to do with intelligence.
