Then your objection is to that definition of intelligence. I was just accused of comparing machines to children. All i was actually pointing out is that that is a quibble of how the "intelligence" has been acquired. Whether or not one substitutes another term for intelligence, artificial means created by humans. Here's the number one definition of artifice from the Merriam-Webster online dictionary:
a : clever or artful skill : ingenuity <believing that characters had to be created from within rather than with artifice — Garson Kanin>
b : an ingenious device or expedient
This is why i have been emphasizing the word artificial to people. Of course it's created by humans. Leaving aside the possible inaptitude of the term intelligence, intelligence does not mean creativity, and until the term is defined for purposes of discussion, any reference to consciousness is also not axiomatic.
For what its worth, i think this could be an interesting topic, but it would need to start from a set of definitions. As i've pointed out, AIs are already in use on Mars, and, in fact, are already used in a great many other applications. People who want to argue about what constitutes artificial intelligence will be up against a wall of years of customary usage.
