I've been in contact with one of the hostages. As I'm sure you're aware by now, the Russians intend to 'confiscate' the rest of us- whether by the same method they captured the first group or some other method is unknown. [And there's something tense and angry in Sabriel's voice, but she forces it back.]

However! The hostages are in communication with the Russian AI LACKEY- and only that, since their guards aren't talkative. I'm making this post. There's no guarantee that LACKEY will answer all questions, or answer honestly, but if they keep it talking, they might learn something.

So I'm making this post to compile information about what we've learned about it so far, and questions that the hostages can ask it.

Ugh...great robots.[ not liking this already, but he has ideas... ]

Well, Okay, AI robot LACKEY....Is it possible we could send one of our robo people through the mental link in the network to talk with it or hack it or something? I mean, someone's gotta have a power like that...maybe. If they aren't blocking that too.

Hm...maybe we could, I dunno, disguise the signal? I mean, okay as far fetched as it sounds and it came from a sci fi book but maybe like one of our techy people could make Magicman identify as an AI instead of imPort or maybe magic or something.

I mean, it's at least an option.

[At first, Kaneda doesn't know what to add to this. He knows next to nothing about AI, or about LACKEY other than the fact that it exists.

As he's about to turn off the feed--something hits him.]


Sabriel.

Bull should try talking to it.

I think so...I've never called OUT from the...brain phone.


[Did you seriously just call it a brain phone, you loser.]

Koromaru contacted me once through it--[Yes, the dog]--but that's different.

Asking it what its purpose is and what its defined duties are - those are good starter questions. You will need to find out its limits. I would assume that Russia wants to keep it operating the way they wish it to operate, which means it will have things it can and cannot do.

Find out, too, the parameters that bind its answers. If it does, in fact, have any.
[ He feels a little unsettled acting like this, like what is technically a fellow AI in this world is just another obstacle to be surmounted, but - well, would he feel that way if his operator had been kidnapped? His teammates from home? Those who endanger the ones he wants to protect are those he can easily push aside. ]

So we know that it was likely commanded to protect the hostages from harm. I wonder if it fears the consequences for not having a function? What happens to it when it lacks a function? [ He wonders if it's learned fear yet. ]

We will assume 'information holding' and 'protection' for now. It will not or perhaps cannot answer information-sensitive questions.

Perhaps ask it for its own views on things. The Russians, humans, whatever can be thought of. It's important to collect as much data as possible about its capabilities.

Someone needs to find out if the AI is movement-restricted or not - if they can transfer from system to system, or if they're confined by a core install to one device and can only get input and output from whatever the Russians choose to connect them to.

Ah- sorry! [Sometimes he forgets most people here don't live with AI.] Can they move from one device to another, or are they restricted to just one?

this is unusual to ask but


what will become of LACKEY once we take the hostages back?

there is no choice but to fight. I know that.

but will it be ultimately destroyed?

converting it and its fate...you can consider these things for the hostages to ask it.

[Kotetsu doesn't know much about robots. He's spent a good chunk of his time here being kind of terrified of the AIs around here, and only just beginning to warm up to them. Still:]

Maybe they could ask it what the Soviets are planning to do with the hostages. And I dunno if it'd answer, but they could try asking how it kidnapped 'em, too.

Maybe have the hostages ask for it to let them go. [ Does she sound bitter? Oops, yeah she does. She lets out a tiny sigh. ] Or suggest that they just ask it questions about itself. Maybe it'll slip up and let something useful out.

Then get smart people to try to ask around it? It shouldn't be too hard. What about people with experience with AIs? There have to be a few taken with some good experience with that
