This sea of blue and black above the Net Cafe & Upload Foyer is the AI Upload. Here people can add new laws for the AI and Cyborgs or reset them with the law modules and upload computer contained within. If the AI and Cyborgs have been irreversibly subverted, the Heads of Staff (or anybody with their IDs) can activate their killswitches with the Robotics Control Computer in here to shut them down...permanently.

Since AI law changes can have such far-reaching effects, this room has as much security as the Armory and then some. For starters, the room is bordered by two layers of reinforced walls, with a layer of electrified metal grilles in the middle that hide surprisingly visible IR beams, which will alert the AI of any intruders by audio cue. The modules and computers inside are protected by turrets, which will lock on and fire at any intruders, unless they deactivate them with the turret control in the Upload Foyer...or find another way around them.

Maintenance information

There are no vents. The AI does not need air.

The APC for the AI Upload Chamber is located on the right side of the room.

The power is supplied via a cable in Fore Port Maintenance to the left of the Net Cafe.

The AI Upload Chamber is a classy blue-and-grey room above the Upload Foyer for adding new laws to the AI and Cyborgs or resetting them with the black-and-green AI modules and blue-and-lighter-blue upload computer. Like its predecessors, it's separate from the AI Chamber, but it mixes things up by being conveniently directly below it, so you can see the AI's immediate reaction (or lack thereof) when you upload a law that makes them state "Hoot!" at the end of every sentence.

Better watch out for that turret though; its AI is much simpler, but very capable of locking on to you, even when you're not in the room, and somewhat less capable of shooting you in the face, hopefully with taser shots, not lasers. If you have a Heads of Staff ID or any ID with access to here, you can turn them off with the turret control in the little black-tiled miniroom. Or, you could get creative...

Maintenance Information

There is no vent. Turrets don't need air.

The APC for this room is near the bottom left, near the long table with the AI modules. Even though it looks tantalizingly close enough, you can't access it from the black-tiled area.

The NSS Destiny has solely one room for uploading laws, storing law modules, and keeping the AI core: a single little broom closet linked to the Bridge, appropriately named the AI Chamber.

Just like its sister ship Destiny, the NSS Clarion keeps the AI core unit, AI Upload computer, and (most of the) AI law modules in one room, called the AI Chamber.

Just like Cogmap1, Linemap's AI Upload continues the Mushroom Station tradition of keeping the room for the AI Upload Computer and the AI core unit itself in different rooms, though, unlike Cogmap1, they're much farther apart. Also, just like Mushroom Station, this room, which is located a few paces above the Warehouse, further differentiates itself from the AI Chamber by its floor design and is only for adding/removing laws to/from the AI. It has no law modules whatsoever. Rather, the law modules for the Upload Computer here are in the room across the hall, the AI Module Storage room.

Maintenance Information

The APC for this room is in the middle of the southern wall.

While the AI Module Storage room is where the modules needed to add/remove laws to/from the AI are located, the AI Upload is where the laws on them are actually added to the AI, through the Upload Computer. It is also where the Robotics Control Computer is located.

Be prepared for four turrets directed aimed at you if you enter, unless you turn them off via the turret controls computer in the antechamber.

Maintenance Information

The APC for this room is on the wall adjacent to the southeastern turret.

Like the Space American Space Constitution, Silicon laws are imperfect but amendable. The default three serve this weird doughnut of a station fairly well, but sometimes, fairly well isn't well enough. Luckily, unlike the Space American Space Constitution, the crew of this station don't have to hold a bunch of board meetings and conventions to change the AI's and cyborgs' laws. Instead, they can just take one of the various pre-fab AI Law modules hidden away in AI Module Storage and take them to this room, the AI Upload, located in the general south/starboard side of the station, just left of another place concerned with law.

Since most people agree that giving any schmuck free reign to add any kind of law to the AI is a Bad Idea, this room is restricted to Command-schmucks only and is guarded by taser-shot turrets. Only the AI, the cyborgs, and said Command-schmucks turn them off, via the turret control panel, though that doesn't stop other people from finding ways to bypass them.

If certain Silicons continue to hurt humans despite having laws not to, they can be destroyed/killswitched via the Robotics Control Computer.

Chiron's AI can do plenty of neat stuff on its own, but sometimes, it needs a little tweaking. Maybe Security would really like the AI to track suspects and report crimes more. Maybe somebody really needs somebody else dead and wants Big Brother's help in doing the job. Or maybe somebody just thinks the AI would be a whole lot better if it narrated everything like Sean Connery.

Enter the AI Upload. This tiny room accessible from the Bridge has all sorts of AI law modules that change the AI's laws in some way. Some change what the AI defines as human, some change how the Chain of Command is arranged, some even give the AI a new name. All are protected by the watchful eyes of the turret, which will impeccably fire stun bullets those who dare tread into this room, lest they turn them off at the turret controls computer before the Bridge door.

Maintenance Information

There is no vent. AI Law modules don't need air.

The APC for this room is on the northern wall.

If the station's AI suddenly starts shutting off all the lights or cramming Sealab 2021 references in everything they say, it's probably because something going on in the AI Upload, the glowing blue room with a trippy "isolinear matrix" pattern on its floor. Here, people can add new laws for the AI and Cyborgs to follow by using one of the law modules sitting on the tables on the AI Upload Computer. Some change what is considered a human under the laws, some declare a state of emergency and tell the AI to follow certain personnel's orders over others' in certain situations, some just give the AI a new name. All are kept under the watchful sensors of the turret in the bottom right corner, which can only be turned off by a turret control strategically kept inside the room.

Maintenance Information

There is no vent. We're not sure what "isolinear matrices" are or why they're blue, but we've been told they don't need air.

The APC for this room is in the top right corner.

On Manta, the AI upload computer and the AI itself live together in the AI Chamber. The modules are in the two AI module storage rooms.
