Can we prove humans have independent decision making?

Individual level - yes, limited in scope. (Proof lies in the fact that a person can evaluate and select an appropriate food source, without prior knowledge of said food source)
As species - yes, unlimited in scope.

No AI can boast either, to my knowledge.

The main reason why is that we are building AI systems top down, most of the time. Watson is a good example of starting in the middle - logic is there, but not the data.

Deduction, yes, but are we even sure how humans "deduce"?

If we can frame it in some algorithmic way, then it would be great.

What I can say, is that the human brain is the ultimate pattern matching engine.
