Is it adultery if you cheat with an AI chatbot?

According to this article,(https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/real-life/i-caught-husband-cheating-ai-28075332.amp) this woman is divorcing from her husband because she discovered him having romantic and intimate chats with an AI chatbot.

This raises the question that with AI becoming more and more advanced and responsive, is can be considered infidelity if it's with AI?

In my opinion no, after all it's just a program and not an actual living being, akin to a videogame, at least at the moment. If it advances more, to the point of self-awareness and maybe even sentience, I'd more in favor of destroying and banning such technology.
