Ever since modern computers arrived on the scene, the concept of “intelligence” has been greatly demystified and replaced by “data processing capacity.” Even the last bastions of mystical meaning in the word “intelligence,” namely the aspects of “creativity” and “awareness,” are being secularized. Computerists are exploring whether the use of look-up tables, tree searches, and pseudo-random number generators can replace the old-fashioned, mystical terms.
