Free will and self awareness are human characteristics.
A car means I can travel at speeds that are in far excess of what I can achieve by my own means, muscle power.
This is the same with computers that are programmed to perform tasks at far greater speeds than our brains can do them.
AI is just a means of programming computers to act in certain ways but they cannot look in the mirror and see 'self'.
As we gained 'self' through evolution, then this means we may produce 'self' in silicon chip one day.
