- Computer: Computers in the Infinity Era are almost universally governed by Artificial Intelligence represented through an Agent which represents the system. Larger systems, such as buildings, starships, or any large network are governed by a Swarm intelligence, which is also represented by an Agent, but has a network of other agents to call upon when necessary.
- Agent/Avatar: Agents are AI/SI representations of a computer system(s). When that Agent takes the form of a living being, it is called an Avatar.
- Failsafe: Following The Crash, all computer have built-in failsafe systems to safeguard against external tampering. The degree to their effectiveness depends on the system’s complexity.
