Sorry for being a tad late Dan. Don’t hate me.
Our AI has been given a rudimentary input and output system in the form of a repurposed USB keyboard and screen. It’s using very basic binary-to-ASCII programming for right now which results in the AI reacting to this much like a child would. This also has given it the side-effect of being very “proud” of it’s capabilities to the engineers, and every time it does a small equation or ASCII art it sometimes overloads it’s processors trying to blink and beep for attention.
One of the more pragmatic engineers decided to also give it a secondary screen of which it can express simple emoticons during conversation. This is both for the AI itself (learning to integrate it in human society) as well as the engineers (they’ve begun to treat the AI like they would a person).
Unfortunately, the draw of the optimized keyboard and the multiple screens has given it a somewhat short battery life.
