Artificial Life is an independent field to Artificial
Intelligence, so I don't see how you can say that. True there is some
cross-pollination, mostly ALife => AI, but sometimes AI philosophical
issues has some relevance to ALife.

An example of the difference: it is relatively easy to define and
measure intelligence. Its virtually impossible to do the same for life.
