Only if the posibrain/MMI is destroyed. Otherwise, it's vandalism or sabotage.

 

I have a question, how old can an IPC be? I mean could they stay kicking forever if they're maintained?

I'm not rrrrrr but i have the answer to that one

As long as an IPC stays charges and its parts are taken care of, An IPC will live until the heat death of the universe.

I think routine intelligence maintenance is also necessary, but iirc IPCs can do that by themselves 99% of the time.

What are your thoughts regarding the concept of intelligence rampancy in IPCs? To more easily define it: Extended periods of time without mind wipes or maintenance start damaging internal system integrity, possibly leading to malfunctioning?

It would probably be more likely that an IPC would just cease to function after an extended period without maintenance.

Are pAI's capable of becoming cyborgs/IPC's? Given that they already have the capability to control a body, and their nature is transient from one device to another, I don't see it as too far a stretch. They would still be bound to the new laws, but it would possibly (?) give them the ability to eventually become organic. Given that they are designed more closely to emulate organics, I can see an old enough pAI learning enough about people to truly "be" people.

That's obvious, son.


A pAI's is just some piece of code. If the code is complex enough or can reprogrammed, it can work in a borg/IPC chassis. Simple, no need to "learn about people" or any other philosophical stuff.

That's mostly what I figured, but when I asked in adminhelp I received a very swift "Not possible" fullstop. It may have been misinterpreted as a question on game mechanics, so I decided to seek a second opinion in an official manner.

Well, my IPCw Echo 1 and 2 were formerly pAIs. I haven't been informed it wasn't possible.


Echo 1 is a shard of a larger system, who was disconnected from her network due to corruption. Instead of wiping her, researchers transferred her data to a posibrain to study her corruption develop. Since she was able to remain stable, Echo 2 was made next, a shard that was uploaded into a posibrain without the corruption.
