Production and Allocation Machine
More commonly known as PAL, they are one of the (more notable) surviving Volkohov-friendly AIs who participated in the creation of the TCF. Many surviving AI designers have been radically updated since that time and it is implied that PAL has been as well (though not said directly). Like many of the other surviving AI designers of the TCF, PAL is housed somewhere in Governance and prefers to keep a low profile.
They currently forecast, report, and advise almost every aspect of the human economy on Earth and to a large extent on colonies managed by Governance. Some examples of which are: Alloc distribution on Earth, resource allocation, and production allocation. PAL uses many tools at its disposal in order to finely tune the economy, notably the price setting of goods and services to incentivize or disincentivize certain modes of spending and production.
