It depends on whether you are talking about self improving AI. Intelligence
depends on knowledge and computing power. For now, both come from humans. But
once you have robots building robots and passing their knowledge to their
offspring, then you have evolution. In that case, goals that don't improve
fitness are unstable and John is right.
