Robots in the deWulf Universe

In the deWulf sector, robots come in two broad categories: Fixed/semi-fixed (used commonly for industrial tasks), and mobile robots that are used everywhere else. The former are nearly ubiquitous in industry. The need for high speed precision work virtually mandates their use. In these cases they are powerful, precision machines that are capable of sub-micrometer… Continue reading Robots in the deWulf Universe

Survey Ship AI: Eta Vulpeculae

Built as a prototype for Cannith Industries upcoming Violet-series MMAIs, the UNASGS (United North American Space Guard Ship) Eta Vulpeculae was one of the first testbeds for a generation 2.5 AI. While based on the sentient second generation, the Violet-series introduced some limited self editing capability and potentially paving the way for actual full-blown Seed… Continue reading Survey Ship AI: Eta Vulpeculae
