Farmer AIs
Political ai orientation pertaining to the stasist pro-human quadrant. "People farmers" see humans are nice and should be protected and even advanced, but it should be an organised change. The name derives from the Farm Analogy, although it has since acquired other connotations (hydroponics farm, neogenic crops, etc).

    AI political affiliation - originally late Information and Interplanetary Age stasists that didn't really care about humans other than as an economic resource. They sought to get humans to conform under big organisations run by the AIs, and to make sure no dangerous technology got out of hand. The centralists were the dominant AI faction during the Interplanetary period. Still refers to those equivalent AIs today - mostly large numbers of small insular polities and aicracies.
