Who cares! The point is that if a human behaved as Watson behaved you'd say he was intelligent, very intelligent indeed. But it was a computer doing the behaving not a person so intelligence had absolutely positively 100% nothing to do with it because , after all, if you can explain how it works then its not intelligence, or to put it another way, intelligence is whatever a computer can't yet do.
