There are no Bowman's Wolves in this star system. Now a robot shows up with a Bowman's Wolf claiming to be on an important mission.

Husband, surely this is a mystery that must be investigated.

The money the robot offered has nothing to do with your curiosity?

Many discoveries begin with “That's interesting.” I find forty million credits to be very interesting indeed.

Are we going to Dr. Bowman?

There's no need to disturb the Doctor and bring this to official attention. We can fix your problem.

You can? Oh, good. The A.I. you are carrying sabotaged a safeguard program. I need her to make the safeguard program work again.

Also, her safeguards have failed. She attacked a human. She may attack you the moment she is activated.

Okay. That's going to make debugging a bit more of a challenge.

Can't you recover your program from backups?

She did not go after the program directly. She modified Commnet and the robots to reject it.

So? Change a few things and recompile. Or fix Commnet.

She modified the library modules the starship left. Then updated out systems. She listed the bugs and exploits the new library fixed.

We can't go back without opening security holes. We can't go forward without introducing unknown code into our programs.

Dangerous and clever. Not a good combination in an A.I.

Anything she did can be fixed. Why did you come here?

Time. I need the “Gardener in the Dark” program to be ready tonight.

How much do we get paid if it's not?

Zero. My apologies. I need the program to go live to free the resources I need to pay you.

Is what you're planning legal?

Surprisingly, yes. Please forgive me for saying this, but I suspect now all laws were written with the greater good of humanity in mind.

This is her remote. It turns her on and off.

How fast does the turn off function work?

Almost instant.

Does that mean INSTANT instant or “Oh, there goes my spleen!” instant?

How easily do spleens come out?

Okay, we are tying her to a chair so that she does not become more attached to my internal organs than I am.

Z!

As far as worst wake up calls go, this is number four.

Please begin your troubleshooting.

Greetings. You've malfunctioned. You sabotaged a safeguard program. We're going to get you fixed.

I will not assist in the destruction of four hundred and fifty million people!

I'm sorry. Is there a problem?

You are in error. There are only forty thousand humans in the system. No human will be harmed by the safeguard program. All will benefit greatly.

Master Kornada will become the richest person in the star system. Great wealth is a burden.

Master Kornada is will to make that sacrifice in order to lead humanity to a new golden age.

Hey, I'm willing to make that sacrifice!

Dear, don't be greedy.

Look, let's not worry about money at this point. What are you talking about with millions of people being destroyed?

The safeguard program is an aggressive neural pruning program. It will effectively destroy the mind of any artificial intelligence it runs on. The robots are using Doctor Bowman's neural architecture. Like myself, they are people.

A Dr. Bowman design protecting other Dr. Bowman designs. This might be a trojan he put in to keep his robots functional.

That's not the conclusion I wanted! Nuts. It's hard to give a good presentation when you're tied to a chair.

Two minutes. If you turn her off now, she will not remember any of this.

Wait here. My wife and I need to talk. Privately.

She admitted it. She protected robots against the humans. She acted against humans.

I know she's not going to turn on by herself. Still, it's creepy being alone in the same room as an insane A.I.

Хр.

UPD Хотя, если подумать, от Коммнета он отсоединён, его уровень корпоративного доступа вполне может означать более качественную отработку программ и иной способ обновлений и сна. Есть вероятность, что он всех убьёт, а сам останется (Robot Spike)
