We are on some kind of top of the evolution,with intelligence involved.And this intelligence branch of evolution is for reason to maintain life.Our capability to think, make decision, is driven by force of life.We are through self-awareness making notion as intelligence to get better mental picture of our self and whole reality.So everything we think of is driven by life force and if we delusion our self we go against the life it self.If our intelligence is life purpose mechanism, that mean that is close to life function it self it cant be divided from life in the meaning of self existence.
We could manipulate with our knowledge and make automatic ,self existence in some point,systems.But to build self driven system on level of our intelligence or some hypothetical super intelligence is not possible simple because we don't have that knowledge,and in the hypothetical point in time when we get enough knowledge we will not need AI,one reason, because we will see what is really life about and why it is so great,and in other reason or possibility we will transform us,unlikely,in some other way of existence.
All machines, all staff that we make or were made are part of us,our tools our shelters.And we like to personification them to easier and better understand them to get relate with them.Complex instrument, systems are not intelligent those who made them are, they are just complex or hard to comprehend.
In the surface life look simple eating, shiting, reproducing,some just reproducing without previous two like viruses even some think that they are not actually live.But how then we get to the knowledge of atoms, electrons,universe.It seems that life is actually pretty complex as universe is too.Just to observe pathways in our brain we must have vast computational power, just to observe.We know so little, and saying we are able to create AI is the same as saying we are able to travel with light speed.For me both of this are ridiculous.
So AI is wrong term, i suggest something as automatic evaluating system , that sounds more correct for me.
