|Vladimir Volokhov (♂)
|Father of Friendly AI
Vladimir Volokhov was an AI researcher in the mid-22nd century. In the wake of the Pretoria Scandal, and with the help of his artificial research assistant Laplace and (without his knowledge) a young girl's wish, he discovered how to mathematically represent and prove the intentions of a machine intelligence. His work netted him a Turing Award in 2146, and paved the way for the ubiquity of AI in modern human civilization.
Other works bearing his name include:
- The Volokhov Criterion - the requirement that all human Governance Representatives be capable of functioning without their networked enhancements.
- Volokhov Analysis - a means of proving whether a particular machine intelligence is sentient, and whether it has a morality compatible with humanity.
