I honestly don't think it's a misnomer. I don't think a sense of agency is required for intelligence. Intelligence is just finding the most relevant info, not necessarily doing anything with it or having a sense of agency with it. But I guess we're using different definitions.

I think your statements about micro bacteria only prove the point that computers have intelligence, rather than prov the opposite. If a flatworm with 300 neurons is intelligent, I don't see why a computer with 10 billion transistors isn't. They're about equally good at going through data and coming to conclusions.
