We don't have an objective definition of what *any* "intelligence" actually means, so does that mean we should ban childbearing as well?

The classical Turing test has the right idea: it just needs more components. If a system acts like it's "intelligent", then it is intelligent, end of story. The mere fact that we still can't precisely define what makes it intelligent, shouldn't prevent us from recognising it.
