In Iain M Banks novella The State of the Art he describes the visit of a Culture
spacecraft to Earth. What the book did not reveal is that a sentient AI known as a drone remained
behind to work on his doctoral thesis, provisionally entitled "Characterising Acceptance of Machine
Intelligence in Age of Scarcity Societies". The drone has kindly agreed to dedicate a
sub-personality to answer questions from interested parties. Type what you would like to say to the drone into

I do fear that the drone has done himself a disservice – I can assure you that he is in reality much more
personable than this rather cantankerous sub-personality would suggest!
