Question from a uneducated curious person

Hi all, first let me say i think your field is fascinating. I just discovered this subbreddit and i have some interesting reading hours ahead of me.

I was wondering if there were some attempts to create AIs by trying to reproduce the mechanisms that led to apparition of intelligence and consciousness (evolution mechanisms) rather than by directly trying to create an intelligence by mimicking brains architecture and trying to deeply undersatnd what is consciousness.

If yes, then where can i find interesting things about that, if no, what makes this approach not viable ?

Sorry if this is a stupid question, as i said, my interest in this is quite new…. thank you.
