Let me try an experiment. It's a spur of the moment thing so it might not work.. but anyway... What is intelligence? What are characteristics that will make you say "That thing is intelligent"? To avoid talking about hopelessly outdated notions like Turing Tests, let's assume that the thing we're observing cannot communicate in any language (eg, self driving car). How would you figure out if the thing has intelligence? What about animals? Are animals intelligent? Are there animals that are more intelligent than other animals? Do you think an animal species will one day, after countless generations of evolution, gain the "Superintelligence" that proponents of technology singularity claim machines will ultimately gain?
