Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but it looks to me like the "sentience" and "sapience" uses are reversed, based on the linked pages and the dictionary. "Sentience" appears to refer to consciousness and sensation, while "sapience" refers to wisdom or judgment. It seems like the former is about personal experience (what would make an intelligence human-like), while the latter is just decision making (which you would expect a standard computer to do).

I fixed it, people mixing them up has always been a pet peeve of mine.
