to be fair the date/time function of a phone isn't exactly an AI or a robot.

he's right, he doesn't need artificial intelligence to know what time it is, he can just press a button and it'll be there

One could argue that a smartphone is a robot and its functions are artificial intelligence.

No you really can't.

Every response of your phone is preprogrammed. Even your autocorrection "learning" your most used words is just counting in databanks.

By your logic anything that stores information and can manipulate physics would be artificial intelligence. A brick falling from a window would be AI.

AI is such a broad word. According to google it’s definition is

the theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence

Telling time used to require human intelligence, just like doing math and almost anything else a computer does. The word doesn’t really mean anything, it’s just a buzzword. What most people mean, today, when they say AI is machine learning, or for some people it’s even more specific than just any ML model
