Animal empathy developed over the course of hundreds of millions of years of evolution, in an environment where individuals were powerless to effect serious change on the world, and had to cooperate to survive. It doesn't just come by default with intelligence.

You are correct that animal empathy evolved over the years but intelligence and empathy do share some connections throughout history. As we develop these AI's after ourselves we have to consider the other components of what it is to care and find solutions.

Moral intelligence is connected to intellect, the ability to recognize cooperation is most often beneficial compared to competition, even humans with higher intelligence tend to have better moral reasoning...

If monkeys focused on making monkey AI they wouldn't be in zoos right now
