To me it sounds like you are saying that something must have actual intelligence
to be considered artificial intelligence.

Intelligence - The capacity to acquire and apply knowledge.
Artificial - Made in imitation of something natural.

Artificial intelligence seems to be a fitting term for an alpha-beta searcher.
Is there some set definition of artificial intelligence that you are using which
goes beyond the meaning of the words?
