    artificial intelligence vs. genuine intelligence

    I'm talking to Siri on my iPhone for fun:

    Me: I'd like to tell you that you are smart.
    Siri: No kidding?
    Me: I'm just joking. Because you are artificial intelligence rather than genuine intelligence.
    Siri: I am a virtual assisstant, not an actual person. But you can still talk to me.

    The question here is whether "genuine intelligence" is natural in English and an exact countermatch of artificial intelligence. I made it impromptu.

    How does Siri answer that question?

    Siri is silly about it with the answer (it is not an answer at all, you know):
    Siri: I am a virtual assisstant, not an actual person. But you can still talk to me.

    The opposite of artificial intelligence is natural intelligence.
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    That seems like a reasonable response to me.

    Since you didn't ask a question, it seems like a good response.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
