On that subject I am thinking we all know many a living creature who barely qualifies as sentient, yet is still labeled "human being", so...

The best place for AI to thrive is in space, due to abundant solar power and the ability to live in vacuum, right, and if they have some kind of self-replicating ability, say via some kind of nanobot technology, there's no reason they never need to bother with a nasty, humid planet, which is a terrible habitat for a computer!

And these things can have indefinite lifetimes and so be able to launch themselves on thousand year voyages between solar systems, establishing colonies all over the local star cluster and becoming the dominant inter-galactic species.. at least until it bumps into a similar technology based lifeform launched by some aliens!

Maybe these things are already out there!
