Data organized into information, leads to shared knowledge which in turn allows us to predict outcomes (wisdom). So if one collects enough data and learns how to convert that into 'sapientia' using a (big) computer, then what classification scheme should be assigned to such man-made intelligence and under what genus? IBM's Watson is not "homo sapien" but it certainly has sapientia. So in what genus does Watson belong? There are many of these new intelligence forms coming quickly - for example http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Factual
We need a name... something akin to Human Beings, perhaps "Factus Beings" ("to make") for example. And once we pick a Kingdom, what scientific classification scheme should be used? Example, what Binomial nomenclature applies to Watson? Homo Sapiens : Facere Sapiens?
Kingdom: Animalia :

Species: H. sapiens : What do we call Watson, Factual.com: "Facere Sapiens"?
