Intelligence is a subjective word.
For instance, if a computer can beat a human chess grand master, does that represent intelligence? That was a grand challenge that was designed in the 1960s, and IBM engineers proved they understood computer technology well enough to take on the task when they developed Deep Blue.
While Deep Blue’s exploits certainly represented a landmark in the development of artificial intelligence, did the computer pass the threshold in which it could actually be described as “intelligent”?
In the video, Siegel tells Big Think how despite his earlier skepticism, the experience of watching Watson beat humans in the game show Jeopardy! was an experience that was anthropomorphic.
