If so then it's human, albeit it's thought process runs on electrical circuits rather than neuron

Judging by the intelligence of some people a calculator could outsmart them.

I always thought human was an organism belonging to the species Homo sapiens

If it's a Google computer it had better know how to dodge bullets.  And baseball bats.

I'd think that since humans are the ones to create the computers, they (the computers) would be unable to be any smarter than those (humans) who created them.

I think this might be dependant on your interpretation of 'interacting' and 'outsmarting'. Both of these are already achieved depending on your interpretation of the words, IMO some people interact and get outsmarted by cardboard boxes.

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to show me where the hell Helen of Annoy has been for the past couple of months.

To perhaps clear up the accuracy of this claim a little bit.

It's a question of learning, perhaps. A child can certainly become smarter than it's teachers. If it has access to the entire collective of knowledge, will it be able to create new knowledge?

Hopefully the intelligent computer is intelligent enough not to use windows.

Rather depends on the person... I think some are already there :whistle:

'Good' is not the same as 'nice'.
'No, murder is running your broadsword through someone because he worships a different God to you... Or is that evangelism? I get confused.'
When they discover the centre of the universe, a lot of people are going to be disappointed - They are not it.
I don't object to the concept of a deity but I'm baffled by the notion of one that takes attendance.
