Abominable Intelligence (A.I. for short) is a term used by the Adeptus Mechanicus for an adaptive, self-enhancing, factitious intelligence with its own consciousness.[1]

During the Dark Age of Technology, these intelligences rebelled against their human masters, leading to bloody wars. Since that time, and by a personal decree of the Emperor himself, it has been forbidden to fabricate or service those machines that are able to think and act independently.[1]

A.I. is not to be mistaken for the machine spirit that has parallels but basal differences - namely, no ability to enhance itself.[1]
