Smart people can come up with dumb labels. The smart prefix has been used with phones, rooms, boards, vehicles, etc.
These devices are not smart. They do not (yet) create or intuit.
The devices might also bring out behaviours in people that are not smart. People walk around with phones without looking around. Teachers might expect the room and board work to engage. Drivers let vehicles make decisions that the latter cannot yet make.
Maybe the people who label things smart are not that smart after all.
