Some few Terran AIs had made the cognitive and conscious leap to true cybernetic intelligence before we arrived.  Some of them actually got involved during the darkest days of your Islamic Jihad.  You may remember the Cleansing Fire nuclear strikes aimed at the cities that dared to stand against the Islamic Brotherhoods?  Their utter and complete failure was thanks to point defense systems “manned” by cybernetic intelligences.  You’re welcome.
