An ai below human baseline turingrade intelligence and without full self-awareness. Subturing computer systems are extremely common, incorporated into everyday objects such as clothing, household appliances and vehicles. Many weapons systems foe example have subsophont control routines, efficiently slaved and obedient but capable of limited autonomous action.
