...at least what we think of as intelligence in a human capacity.
Although if human intelligence evolved or emerged by accidental
mutation, isn't there equal probability that there exist other forms
of emergent intelligences we are currently unable to recognize?  In
that case, we may be in a swarm of intelligent systems but we're just
so clueless (in our hubris) that we can't see it.
