human intelligence and computers

Can computers become intelligent in human terms?
They have enormous calculating skills and lots of memorizyng capacity, but basically lack the human emotional and decision potential (they execute orders, and stand-by), but is it possible to apply human scales to computers?
How do we measure human intelligence? Here an interesting (well, long and academic but interesting somehow) article about IQ tests (intellingence quotient...human intelligence compressed into a 2-digit number, 3-digit for the smarter guys). They have been so powerful in the past, that during the 1920s IQ tests were used to identify “feeble-minded” persons. These persons were then subject to forced sterilization.
