An outgrowth of cybernetics, AI Cores approach true artificial intelligence. AI Core development and usage is limited, with the development of expert systems and SuSim? cyborgs. For dry computational tasks and rule interpretation the expert systems' lack of self-awareness was a blessing rather than a burden. For physically manifested tasks considered too menial, too dangerous, or too monotonous, the SuSims? and SuSimCys? proved cheaper, more reliable, and, through advancements in genetics, easy to dominate. Only for those applications where it is difficult to keep cyborg organics alive; or more than computational processing is required are AI Cores employed.
