When colonial scientists approached the possibility of creating artificial intelligence, they needed to define the goals and nature of such. Although there was debate as to particulars, all agreed that true artificial intelligence will include memory storage, adaptive deduction and default reasoning, a sub-symbolic form of commonsense knowledge, perception filters, learning, natural language processing, and creativity. Those fearful of artificial intelligence insist any design must also include some form of social intelligence and a hierarchical control system. In terms of hardware, it is theorized that only a three-dimensional torus network of quantum supercomputers capable of one zettaFLOPS (floating-point operations per second) computing would approach artificial intelligence as defined by researchers, a possibility rumored to have been attained by at least one colony already.
