By the end of the 20th Century, computers had become an essential element of life on Old Earth. In factories, offices and homes, computers dominated human existence. When the colonists landed on this planet, it was vital for them to advance and adapt computing to survive. Discoveries in unique materials and advances in networking allowed ever more tasks to be transferred to the oversight of advanced computers. These advances would eventually lead to advances in cybernetics, as quantum computers were made ever more compact, and given sophisticated programs that approached self-awareness and creative intelligence. Within a few decades of arrival, the distinction between human and artificial intelligence had blurred to the infinitesimal.
Unlike other Tier 1 technologies, it is not directly linked to the Habitation technology, requiring another technology (either Ecology or Engineering) to be developed first.
