Robotech : Battlecry Mars Base
AI for the Base
Kyōko Aizome is a fictional synthetic intelligence. she is instrumental in preventing the activation of the installations, which would have destroyed all sentient life in the galaxy.
Kyōko original design was based on the Egyptian queen Nefertiti; the character’s holographic representation always takes the form of a woman.
Kyōko is constructed from the cloned brain of Dr. Catherine Elizabeth Halsey, the creator of the SPARTAN Project; Halsey’s synaptic networks became the basis for Kyōko processors. Kyōko is classified as a “smart” AI, meaning that her creative matrix is allowed to expand, in contrast to the limited matrix of other “dumb” AI characters in the stories. This ability allows Kyōko to learn and adapt beyond her basic parameters, but at the cost of a limited “lifespan” of only seven years; eventually, she will fall to rampancy, a terminal state of being for Artificial intelligence constructs, in which the AI “develops delusions of godlike power”, as well as utter contempt for its mentally inferior makers. Rampant AI normally cannot return to their previous state and must be destroyed before they harm themselves and others around them.
Kyōko is highly skilled and capable of hacking alien computer systems and decoding transmissions and occasionally smug about her abilities. Kyōko hacks into Top Secret Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) documents out of boredom. Her intellect occasionally causes her to be loquacious to a fault; Halsey notes that if she were to let Kyōko continue with her hypothesis, then the AI would talk all day. The Doctor also sees Kyōko as a teenage version of herself: smarter than her parents, always "talking, learning, and eager to share her knowledge. Kyōko is also described as having a sardonic sense of humor, she often cracks jokes or wryly comments, even during combat.Her high spirits and lack of programming restrictions give her a set of behavioral “quirks” unique among most AI.
As an artificial construct, Kyōko has no physical form or being. Kyōko always speaks with a smooth female voice, and she can communicate through comm systems and project a holographic image of herself from appropriate projectors, such as Holo tanks, and appears holographically as a woman. Kyōko is said to resemble her creator, Dr. Catherine Halsey, with a similar attitude “only unchecked by military and social protocol.” Kyōko is described as slender, with close-cropped hair and a skin hue that varies from navy blue to lavender, depending on her mood. Numbers and symbols flash across her form when she is thinking.
