I probably studied it at the University, but I am functionally
illiterate on the topic now.

Probably, it would mean that computation can only be optimized to a
point. :-) That I agree with. I just don't think we know the point at
which "intelligence" emerges. I've seen "intelligent UPS" used in
marketing. I'm sure those UPSs were not "intelligent" in any form we
would recognize.
