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.
Farmer AIs - Text by Anders Sandberg Political ai orientation pertaining to the stasist pro-human quadrant.

Libertarian AIs - Text by M. Alan Kazlev The pro-human dynamist camp; these ai seek to help modosophonts develop semi-autonomous societies under transapient guidance rather than direct rule.
