Artificial Intelligence? It is artifical, but is it intelligent?

I actually appreciate separating the notion of intelligence from the notion of consciousness. Consciousness involves subjectivity, self-awareness, inner experience, and the so-called "hard problem," but if one definition of intelligence is "problem-solving ability," then I think it's possible for something to be intelligent without necessarily being conscious. By this way of thinking, a chess program has limited intelligence related to chess but is in no way conscious. Robots programmed to navigate certain social situations are the same: intelligent but not conscious. Same for robots that drive cars or guard property.

Actually, I agree with you about intelligence and consciousness. Thanks for reminding me to rub my two ideas together if I want to spark a fire.
