IMTU Robots: Lenses, Cost Packages, and Tools

Updated 4-26-2012
Finally got around to detailing IMTU robots. I think my brother would love this.
This is for Androids and Robots.

Sources of Note:
  • AI and Software Cost UT25
  • Machine Intelligence Lenses UT27
  • Biomorphic Lenses UT28
  • Expert Skills of ISW164
  • Computers B472

Android Skills in ISW and IMTU
Note that a computer can run a Two Programs of it's Complexity B472. The second program is the Professional Template of the Machine Intelligence. Basically the Complexity of the Program gives the Machine Intelligence more character points for skills.
C5 - 1cp
C6 - 3cp
C7 - 5cp
C8 - 10cp
C9 - 25cp
C10 - 50cp

Consequences of Failure. Sometimes consequences are small, some are big. Part of human decision making we are hardly aware of is that "feeling" we get that the consequences cannot be that bad and how much we mentally hedge the risks we take.

Low AI's effect on skill rolls. Less judgement means more context-incorrect decisions. Basically there is a chance the computer can do a spectacularly bad thing. Thats is why they are only tasked on things that have a limited failure. A margin of failure equal to the Complexity Requirement's score of the AI. If an AI has a (IQ/2)+4 like mind emulators, there is a +4 allowable margin of failure, where failure is not that critical. On a weak dedicated AI, where it is (IQ/2)+1, failure is much messier than that of other AI's or humans. Humans have a margin of +5.

So Weak Dedicated AI's, Low sophistication Ais, always needs human guidance. It is after all a smart tool, and the operator or the human guide is the one who makes careful decision what the AI does to mitigate the penalty.

Purchasing the Robot Brains and Software. 
This is an added cost to the robot. I'm focusing on TL9 and 10. I don't want to bother with TL11 because we have barely explored even TL9, I'd rather consider all the hacks that might happen before going to TLs that may take all that power forgranted.

Compact Microframes are 20lbs, the computer extends to the spine and the core of the body. This needs a medium sized body (size 0).

Weak AI.
