talking about what Lain would theoretically use:what she would use now is way different than the show. i think she definitely would [use bsd]. i think she would write her own tables and run openbsd like a madman. or run a hardened kernel of Gentoo compiled herself with use flags. Or maybe a version of Arch she could script to setup within minutes; small portable with limited attack surface. she would use whatever works, and throw away her work in an instant if she knew she could get more performance. her interest wasn't in protecting herself after all, it was in reaching as many as she could as fast as she could.

>>528 maybe she wrote a network stack for iti mean she did literally create an AI of her father, it's not far fetched

CoplandOS was essentially just NeXTSTEP, so she would use OSX lmao. FreeBSD or OpenBSD with a nice GUI installed are the closest things today.

Lawrence Eng did quite an extensive write-up of this topic http://www.cjas.org/~leng/apple-lain.htmAs her system evolves she goes from a complete beginner to literally a god. To start it would be any typically pre-installed OS. Once she starts upgrading her system with custom hardware it's quite likely she would use a unix-like variant. When she gets into clustering the type of system could be anything from a simple hadoop setup to a full fledged cluster management platform.Beyond this she limitless capabilities, leveraging Eiri's KID System and protocol 7 where an OS just wouldn't be relevant.

i like the stuff being done with vagrant or docker. lightweight authenticated audited streamlined basis then just the software layer being built in.there was something else that i have, that you can actually separate calls to go into another "vm" thus isolating it like useflags in gentoo. fuck my memory. i blurt it later it was definitely unix-y prior to the bsd-ing of apple that it was written, but she went a lot further than that, even creating methods of interaction

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5iZMD_eCpEoit's funny but I really find something inspirational about Shodan quoteshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pp5xGLj1RMEWhat does it tell about me huh?

this really inspires mehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKl6WjfDqYAwe should force people to stop living in their echo chambers and become One, no personality or bias.

being partially facetious. blah blah blah too much control given to technology yada yada. in the end we're writing the software that makes them, and i would assume like any other system we've made there are concurrent failsafes built-in to disallow the system from failing catastrophically. I personally am ready to accept my AI overlords ;D

>>461In System Shock 1, Shodan turned into a monster after she was hacked to remove ethical restrictions which would allow her to start Saturn mining and destroy the local lifeforms. It just that Shodan have decided she has some other plans.I have just watched Westworld myself and they also have this "AI is the blackbox and we have no idea what is going on" thing there. On one hand it sounds stupid, on another, we kind of indeed have some limited control over the neural networks for example. With machine learning we can filter the training data and we get predictable results this way, but we never know the SPECIFIC result we can anticipate from the program. Especially if the output is complex.

I've been playing with the idea of making a /cy/ themed roguelike (or perhaps general turnbased rpg). What kind of character/npc types would you like to see in such a game? I'd like to add a bit more variety than just giving a future theme to generic magic abilities.

use of the internet for stuff like trading, like a simulated marketplace.

Satellite Reign is a good starter for something like that, it looks pretty close to your OP image. I have it on Steam, can't run it very well so I have a very small amount of time registered though. :(

https://vimeo.com/179509486 "Sinofuturism is an invisible movement. A spectre already embedded into a trillion industrial products, a billion individuals, and a million veiled narratives. It is a movement, not based on individuals, but on multiple overlapping flows. Flows of populations, of products, and of processes. Because Sinofuturism has arisen without conscious intention or authorship, it is often mistaken for contemporary China. But it is not. It is a science fiction that already exists. ''
