Red face artificial intelligence and supercomputing

hi. im not sure that im posting this in the right place but i have a few questions regarding this subject. any type of answers would be appreciated.

1) to my knowledge a supercomputer is a cluster of computers working to collect data and perform computations fast. artificial intelligence is making the computer think like a human making it do things like read, learn, etc. so basically my question is: "is supercomputing independent of a.i. or without a.i. the supercomputer cannot exist"

2) i started to do a research topic on the movie eagle eye and its super computer ariia. it stands for Autonomous Reconnaissance Intelligence Integration Analyst. what does this mean?

3) i believe i know a little about a.i. and the movie seems to be unrealistic as ariia is performing "illegal" actions with no human supervision. so i wanted to know if any one had a better topic dealing with a.i. and supercomputing.

thank you for your time. GOD BLESS!

No computer is capable of true A.I; even if all the computers in the world were hooked together. It'd take a very complex program, and digital 1's and 0's could never reproduce what our brains can.

Computers are pretty much either/or/and devices and when it cant decide it produces errors.

Humans can deal with indecisiveness and rationalise.

The current computer tech. is as smart as a mouse.

And even then, only in its behavior...not its actual operation. Mice can "process" errors as well.
