How smart are you? Are you as smart as a human?
I've read the works of Feynman, Newton, and Einstein. Take someone like John von Neumann. He not only realized you could take programming out of hardware, he came up with the rules of how to do it in a single afternoon. Nothing my species has done comes close to that.
She's right. She's not as smart as a human. She IS smart enough to make sure any human who asks knows it.
