That argument only makes sense if the computer in question is sentient. Otherwise, no matter how "smart" we make an AI, it's still just a machine. Modern AI is not intelligent, nor is it even remotely close to something that could be considered alive. It's just math. Lots and lots of math. In fact I would argue that it is not even possible to create a sentient AI with current AI/ML approaches.
