Basically, this is anthopormphisation by definition, since it has been
clarified by now that much more "intelligent" computers would not be
considered as AGI unless they exhibit the kind of human-like behaviour
allowing them to compete with the Real Thing in Turing tests.

As a consequence, AGIs will probably not be the most intelligent
entities around. They will simply be those amongst them who take
themselves as humans or as humans' children.
