Its really kind of stupid that Starfleet hasn't been shown to incorporate artificial intelligence, it would make heavy automation of ship systems much easier.
Realistically, there should be a minimum amount of crew on board with most systems automated, even in 23rd century starships.
I mean, we're already racing toward real AI computers, you'd think by the 23rd or 24th centuries Starfleet would have Halo-like AI's.

M-5 was perhaps on the borderline of sentience, and was greeted with horror - at least, after it went on its little murderous rampage. Surely the computers had impressive AI, as GK points out, but the universal paucity of robotics - including the novelty with which robotics were treated - indicates a pretty widespread avoidance of sentient AI.
