This contribution moves in the specific area of the philosophy of mind and, in particular, in that of the philosophy of free will. The question of free will, in fact, has always been at the center of philosophical debates and is still an open question today. The aim of this paper is to use the discipline of artificial intelligence as a magnifying glass for the free will problem in order to identify, through it, how this cognitive capacity is an androrithm: an element specific to the human being and irreproducible. Through an analysis of the similarities and dissimilarities that the question of artificial intelligence and that of free will share, and a brief review of the various types of freedom that - in the face of contemporary debate - could be present in both human beings and machines, we will come to the conclusion that the so-called ambitious free will, if it exists at all, can never be reproduced and is therefore characterized as a constitutive element of the human being.
