And the other story that has some components is Robert Heinlein's Lazarus Long tales where if I recall correctly there is also a ship/computer entity that becomes sensient.
Dora, named after the love of his life, and who starts taking on some of the personality characteristics of the original. Note that in that setting, computers becoming sentient is a normal thing that happens, and while one can't quite make it happen on demand, one can build a computer of the right sort that it can happen, which Lazarus (presumably deliberately) did.
