True Artificial Intelligence
A True Artificial Intelligence is a Brilliant Age feature of sophisticated computers capable of independent learning, complete synaptic recall, independent decision-making, and the ability to achieve suprahuman turing test ratings.
- In other words, they can reliably outhink humans and other wetware sophonts.
- These computers are popularly known as Feeling Machines.
What is true artificial intelligence? It's a very nebulous term, but the greater robotics community uses it to refer to an intelligence capable of making independent decisions, not just following a subroutine or preprogrammed instructions. Different levels of autonomy have been proposed theoretically, and while some incredibly sophisticated robots exist, few scientists believe that true artificial intelligence has NOT been achieved by the known species of Charted Space. Now, the Ancients are an entirely different story. Few precursor studies specialists would propose something that they could not achieve. 
Some scientists and roboticists have proposed that the test of reliable synaptic function is the only test of True Artificial Intelligence.  A robot with 100% reliable and operationally functional memory recall and self-learning functions would theoretically have no intelligence limitations. There is no limit to the effect of synaptic processing intelligence at that point. Such a robot could truly becoming the ultimate thinking, and even feeling machine being able to match sophontic thought, feeling, and easily pass the Turing Test at suprahuman levels.
