Ask Angeline Anything!

Posted by / in Extras / 23 comments

Alright, following up on our success of interviewing Tenzin, it’s now Angeline’s turn for the spotlight!

For inspiration, here is an early concept drawing of Angeline that Seba made ages ago that really captured her character very well in my opinion.  Her look has changed a bit across the comic, but I still keep coming back to this original drawing :D

So, comment below with your questions, and I’ll compile answers into a post like I did for Tenzin :)

  • Matt [in Middletown]

    “How long until we all sing the Machine Song, or are ground under the metallic heels of your computerized children?”

  • Adriano

    Hey, Angeline ! What do you think of Tenzin ? Still having a crush on him now that he misses some members ? ;D

  • Matt [in Middletown]

    “Dr Bellami, rumor has it that you are secretly a ‘bad ass’, dark rumors of you riding a fast atv away from a lab and killing several Gold Horde bandits single handedly. Can you tell us about this adventure, or is it classified much like most of the Oracle project?”

  • Delta-v

    *Ahem* All other “questions” aside, when you programmed Jane and her siblings to interface so thoroughly with their partners, was Jane’s development a surprise, or was that the hoped-for outcome?

  • Honza Prchal

    What inspired you to study science? Was it the Soviet and post-Soviet educational system that made the humanities less palatable and the sciences obviously suited to less physically destructive labout?

  • Amberlight

    Kittens, puppies or AI constructs?

  • Nate the Robot

    Where did you study your AI? What is your degree in? Are you a pioneer in AI, or is Jane based on some universal algorithm?

  • Matt [in Middletown]

    How were the AI initially created?
    What was the progression from the first iteration to Jane?
    And how does Gramps fit in?

  • Dusty Coyote

    Is there a difference between simulated emotion and actually feeling it? When does a machine become an individual with rights? Do you think that Jane is better at rewriting her code the others? Why or why not? How does an AI acquire ethics?

    Got a favorite color? Is it green? Are you sure it’s your favorite color or have they gotten to you too? No! you cant take me away! I speak the truuuuuuuuu…….

    Hey, Angie ! Pasta, rice or potatoe ?

    Hey, Angie ! Do you make your own food or do you eat “ready 2 eat” food ?

    • Matt [in Middletown]

      Potato, buttered and lightly seasoned with a touch of garlic and salt, mashed with Minervan Standard Advanced Tactical Brick Mk3!
      *looks around*
      Oh yeah, that’s someone else…

      • Nah, Viktor prefers to drink his potatoes.

        • Matt [in Middletown]

          Shaken, not stirred.

  • Delta-v

    Do you have any other pending projects you can tell us about, or is perfecting the tactical companion AIs and rewiring Captain Dorje absorbing all your time?

  • Delta-v

    What do you learn from the small autonomous bots like the one Jane commandeered? Did she damage or destroy the on-board AI programming when she took it over?

  • DrCrazy102

    When making the AI programmes, such as Jane, did you think that they would be capable of performing such highly advanced medical techniques as Jane demonstrated in their current form, or did you think you would have to make a Jane 2.0/Janette?

    Could Jane actually overrun the security systems of Minerva if she desired to? Even if not technically possible, what do you think Jane would do while she was in control, even if it was only for a short time?

  • Adriano

    Hey Angie ! What’s your salary ?
    Do you live in your lab or in an apartment ?
    Who was your parents ?
    What’s your family history ?
    Did you have a nice childhood ?
    Where you born in Minerva City ?
    What studies did you make ?
    How was school for you ?
