"Turingschande: Noun. Shame felt upon discovering one has mistaken an artificial intelligence for a close relation."

HistoryEdit

In the first decade of the 21st Century on Old Earth, researchers in the then-United States and Japan designed a synthetic synapse that mimicked the function of an organic one. The Great Mistake brought a hiatus to developments in “synthetic thought,” as science was turned to dealing with more immediate concerns. Colonial scientists eventually perfected the original design, creating a silver-sulfide, nanoscale synapse that enabled both short- and long-term memory to a degree never seen before. The activity of synthetic thought conforms to psychological nodes of human memory, allowing for replication of human cognition in terms of analysis and judgment. These artificial synapses, although costly and delicate, are now used in a variety of ways, implanted into human brains to improve performance and integrated into computer networks to heighten artificial intelligence. Whether in human augmentation or computer biomimicry, research in synthetic thought has opened new horizons for social progress on this world.
