But perhaps you can explain then how a program does or creates something it was not programmed to do?


That's the whole point of AI - getting the computer to figure things out for itself instead of being programmed with every possibility.

The computer has no sense of self, and will only do what it is programmed to do.


Again, the whole point of AI is to get the computer to do what it is not specifically programmed to do.

But if you are in any way referring to a computer performing any function independent of it's programming, then that so far has happened..... never.


A machine was given the goal of not crashing into anything. It decided that the way to achieve that goal was to not move at all.

Nobody programmed it to do nothing. It figured that out for itself.
