This is a very good point and possibly event true. Nevertheless interacting
with such
an intelligence will truely be a very alien experience and as such the value
of such intercourse
would be very limited indeed. This is the reason designers around the world
from basic
consumer software to robots are trying to make them "human" so that we feel
more comfortable
interacting with them, thus deriving more value from the experience.
