Sometimes You Need

I was thinking about Artificial Intelligence last night and what would classify something as being a living entity. I used to do a lot of computer programming and have written programs that read and write data, but never anything that was able to rewrite it's own code. In order for something to be artificially intelligent, it would need to be able to do that. It would need to evolve itself in a successful way to function and survive the same way that animals have evolved themselves through trial and error and by passing on their successful genes for who knows how many generations. The thing my mind stuck on though is "trial and error". Making mistakes is part of our nature, as it helps us to grow and adapt. Also, maternity pictures:
