No, that's not necessarily true. Systems with the ability to learn can become 'smarter' (strictly regarding a specific domain, usually) than their creators.
Heck, they don't even need to be able to learn. They just have to be more efficient in some way. Calculators can perform calculations faster than their creators can. (Cheap example, but a good one! :P)
