Forensic Eschatology
Discipline related to forensic cybernetics and AI pathology.

Forensic eschatologists study the remnants after AIs crash, AI viruses, perversions, blights, ascensions and other threats. While mainly a theoretical field, forensic eschatologists are called whenever serious high-singularity aberrancy is detected. They not only have to figure out what went wrong, but also point out possible consequences. A blight or ascension might leave behind many dangerous artefacts or have cultural-spiritual implications that must be handled.
