Yeah, I was going to say something similar. You'll never get a compiler to be as intelligent as a human being. At best you'll get human intelligence rapidly applied by a computer to a problem. The computer will be able to do this "manual labor" (if you want to call it that) faster than a human can. However, a human being will be able to find ways to optimize for the problem that a computer will not be able to.

I realize that many people believe that computers will some day be able to truly think on a human level. I just don't happen to be one of those people.
