Generic term for a sub-singularity non-biological sentient being that is not a vec or alife. May be a bot, expert system, intelligent agent, sentient vehicle, sentient building, or any other type of similar entity.
Aioids with less native intelligence than a human being are generally known a sub-turing entities; this means they are not capable of passing the so-called Turing Test. Those aioids which are roughly equivalent to a baseline human in intelligence level are often referred to as turingrade; most, if not all, turingrade machines can pass the Turing Test (depending on how it is administered). Modosophont aioids who are more intelligent than baseline humans but less than transapient are generally known as superturings; these superbright minds are often used even today for many complex tasks.
AIs who have passed the First Singularity are known as Hyperturings; these transapient AIs are not regarded as aioids, since that term is reserved for modosophont ais only.
These terms should not be confused with the term used in information technology for an idealised computer, a Turing Machine.

- Sublect - Text by M. Alan Kazlev
 a term for an inferior minds (generally, anything less than SI:1).
 a subroutine, a dedicated processing node, a mind that is part of a greater mind.
- Subroutine - Text by M. Alan Kazlev, adapted from KurzweilAI
A program, block of programs, sublect, or group of sublects organizationally distinct from the main body of the program or mind, which may be called from within the program or mind. Most high toposophic minds and even medium level ai make extensive use of subroutines.
