The term is automatic. It is automatic in its processes. It's precise in its making,
And humans aren't?
No. If men were automatic there wouldn't be evolution. A machine is designed to do a certain task given by a person, it doesn't have free will. A person has the free will to choose a goal and choose the way to approach it.
The more you study psychology and human behavior the more you realise "free will" etc ain't as much of a beautiful, human only, thing.
Also, your question is "ever". Of course computers are at some point going to reach artificial intelligence status.
