Stop Calling It Intelligence

I’ve been talking about AI (and especially the Machine Learning part), and how we can’t get into a mind set where AI = magic. Part of that is the terminology. If we anthropomorphize the software, we are tempted to think it is more autonomous and sentient than it can be, or at least in the foreseeable future. Instead, we should use terms based on assistance or enhanced rather than intelligence and learning.
