Only humans have free will? (Superintelligence)

We usually hear that it is said "Human has free will".
But, as you know, AI (Artificial Intelligence) and SI (SuperIntelligence) devices theoretically can beat human brain/mind in the near future. They can learn, experiment, solve very difficult problems and independently decide for themselves without human interference.

University of Oxford philosopher Nick Bostrom defines superintelligence as "any intellect that greatly exceeds the cognitive performance of humans in virtually all domains of interest".
More on SI: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superintelligence

Now some questions that usually asked in the universities on these matters:
1# Can we again claim that "only humans have free will" or "Human is the foremost being" when those technologies exist?

2# What is the difference between human free will and free/independent decisions of AI/SI devices?

3# When there are many powerful and superior minds (AI and SI devices) that can do anything very better than human, what is the benefit of human's existence at that time?
