Hardware, Embedded Systems Artificial intelligence is still a long way from delivering the human intelligence in robot form that has long been common in science fiction.

When a computer can learn a new language like a 0-6 year old child can do. When you computer understands what you are doing. When a computer can drastically improve over time without a programmer. That is when you can call it intelligent IMO.

So virtually all primates cannot be called intelligent? (likewise cetaceans, cats, dogs, going through many tool-making & using birds, "down" to octopuses or even swarm intelligence of some insects)

It's a spectrum. And humans find it very hard to "drastically improve over time without a programmer" - there are enough cases of severely neglected children and effects of it, even some feral children (while most of such stories are made up, there are few rigorously documented ones, for example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genie_(feral_child) ).
IQ and fertility rate are inversely correlated ...might be also because of more focus each individual child can get, when there is less of them.

The computer characters in a game act dumber than dogs.

Well, when you mix some good (at being "realistic") deathmatch FPS bots with average human players, immediately telling them apart is not always so clear.
