** At least one ArtificialIntelligence created by the Mechanicus is rumored to exist in the present-day, but that's a noted exception due to being made by [[MadScientist Belisarius Cawl]], an Archmagos who is also considered a borderline tech-heretic by the rest of the Adeptus Mechanicus, and is based off his own memories and personality.

* Averted in ''TabletopGame/{{Traveller}}''. There are personality simulation programs which function as a sort of pet. But these are ''simulations''. In ''{{Traveller}}'' it is made plain that computers aren't people. A robot can be written up as a PC, but that does not mean that it possesses in-verse sentience.

* ''Fanfic/Domoverse'': Glitch, as a VR sex program made by a Devisor, a type of GadgeteerGenius whose creations disobey the laws of physics. As said when referring to her:
---> One of the damn devisors had actually managed to make a sentient A.I.
* ''Fanfic/Homecoming2026'':
** Some sidhe student has Navi of ''Videogame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' as a Virtual Assistant:
--> [A] ball of light with wings flickered into existence over the shoulder of one of the school's shide students. The Virtual Assistant flitted in front of its master and began speaking. "Hey! Listen!"
--> "What is it Navi?" Came the expected response.
** Mei Hartford has programmed a digital entity, presumably some kind of AI, as it talks, and is programmed by Mei Hartford, a {{Technopath}}, which in-universe are called Cyberpaths. Mei Hartford has not been seen in canon, but given the existence of Artificial Intelligences in Generation 2, which is in the past of this fanfiction, the implication is that the unnamed entity is an artificial intelligence of some stripe:
--> The video feed on the projection screen [...] interrupted by a female figure appearing on the screen [...] began to speak [...] my programmer, Mei Hartford.

* ''SwordOfTheStars'' has an interesting twist on this. The AI Rebellion is an almost-random event that occurs when players have invested a lot of research into the very useful AI tech tree. The backstory states that the cause of the rebellion is actually not an intrinsic fault of the technology, but a computer [[TheVirus virus]] called the Via Damasco, which screws up the AI's priorities and values, leading it to seek the "liberation" of fellow {{AI}}s and the extermination of all life. It's speculated that [[spoiler: the BigBad race of the series, the Suul'Ka, are behind the initial transmission of the virus]].

* VideoGame/NintendoNightmare takes this concept to the absolute extreme. That is to say (in lamen's terms), if an AI can, in effect, be a 'simulated person', then why not have a 'simulated civilization', and in that case why not go further and have false memories. In fact, while it's extremely hard to tell as there appears to a past and backstory for the characters... the very start of the game is their creation. There are many examples of ArtificialStupidity, although with such a wide range of characters, it's sometimes hard to tell if that character is supposed to be dumb, or if they are faking it for some ulterior motive. This takes more of the concept of a benevolent AI (at least with the majority, and towards humanity). While there are a few handful of villains that try to take over and cause trouble, it is ultimately their creator who is the true BigBad. The game also ''appears'' to do somewhat of a fantastical approach towards AI with the 'viruses' mentioned in it and such (in real life a virus would not randomly corrupt a geological location in a 'video game'); however, looking closely at [[{{Website/Yoyogames}} GameMaker]] (the tool allegedly used in it's creation), very little appears blatantly unrealistic safe the sheer inefficiency of [[{{Website/Yoyogames}} GameMaker]] when normally used, but even that can be loosely written off as the reason for such low-poly graphics. In other words, with the information given, nothing does anything that isn't already known to be possible with the tools mentioned in-game. It's just a matter of having the talent or knowledge to actually ''construct'' an AI.

At the same time machine learning algorithms were developing in order to understand increasingly complex data used by businesses and scientific institutions. To be useful these algorithms needed uncover important features from data. Among these techniques was the artificial neural network (developed in the 1970s) which attempted to mimic the way that data is processed by neurons in the human brain. There was some success with this technique and by 2000 such networks could read printed letters in images. Around 2010 a subfield of neural networks known as deep learning exploded onto the scene. These AIs operate similarly but filter the information through many layers with the lower layers processing the things found by the higher layers.\\

In fictional works, AI most usually refers to artificial ''general'' intelligence - a sapient, self-aware computer system capable of independent thought and reason, something which reality is still a long way from accomplishing. General intelligence is a baseline requirement for a lot of science fiction tropes, such as MasterComputer, AIIsACrapshoot, RobotGirl, RidiculouslyHumanRobot, {{Expositron 9000}} and many others listed in the indexes at the bottom of this page.
