: The AIs in Halo are all based on human brains, the reason being that
: "they don't understand how the human mind works, just that it
: works." They can't replicate something they don't understand, so they
: have to clone it.

Not... proven. There are AIs in the novels (Wellesly, Beowulf, Deja) that were "dumb" AIs and were modeled on historical or mythological personas. They may have human brain-maps as templates, but that's not expressly stated in Bungie material. It is, however, stated expressly that all "smart" AIs (in Marathon terms, they're effectively short-lived stable-Rampant AIs) are from brain scans. It's worth noting that the brain scans are fatal.
