That is a highly debatable point. What is a result of intelligence? How do we measure that result, whatever it is? We don’t even have an agreed upon definition of intelligence, so how can we agree how to measure it, let alone a result of it, whatever that is. IQ tests do not measure intelligence, they measure the ability to take IQ tests. Better to have said, many people believe the results of intelligence can be measured. Also, many people believe the results of art can be measured. That is why some artists are deemed better than others. If no one believed art could be measured we would have no basis for comparing talent in art between various artists. Even though we do not know what intelligence is, we know for certain what it is not. It is not a computer running programs consisting of sophisticated algorithms. This we simply call (or should call) modern computing. Many people call it artificial intelligence because they believe it increases their profits or page views or whatever hype indicator of choice they believe is important. For instance if the title of your post had been “How Companies are Using Modern Computing To Build Their Brand” you would almost certainly get many less page views and less comments like mine. However, you would in fact have told the exact same story as you told in this one. No parts at all would have had to change and the article would have read exactly as it currently does. The major difference would have been that it would have been factually accurate instead of completely in error. It’s a shame really because other than its total and utter disconnect with reality and fact, it is a fine piece.

Keep up the good work!
