.❱❱ MAISON & I.V.O.
ver.1.1.35

MAISON (lit. "House", Fr) is a unique personal assistence device capable of handling a variety of auxillary tasks for its user. It can process information, broadcast or recieve data, record sound, among other functions. Furthermore, it can update its software [SEE: "I.V.O."] on the fly.

The device is shoulder mounted[1], although it doesn't need any external mount. A motorized, segmented spine can articulate a wide range of motion to gently compress around the shouder/trap area while underlining adhesive pads prevent it from easily slipping off[2].

In its current version it has no inherent display capabilities, though a salvaged smartwatch display provides a limited feed while vibration based notifications take over on silent mode. MAISON can take over external projection devices in its VPN[3] to compensate.

On the back of the device are the battery and a collapsible antenna for interacting with its enviroment. Currently, the battery life is not optimal[4].


IVO [Intelligent Virtual Operator] is a software agent that can perform tasks or services for the user based on commands or questions. It operates through a Natural-language user interface that has limited learning ability. Originally a pet project, it was further developed over the course of July 2018 into a weak Artifical Intelligence for the STEMs where I.V.O. earned Woodrugh a second place. It serves as a direct means for interfacing with computer systems and other networked appliances.

Chiefly, IVO oversees the Lambda Laboratory and Woodrughs' residence for him; performing basic maintenance and ordering sub-routines. As its name implies it is perfectly capable of day-planning, route guidance and other quality-of-life tasks. The software is not housed at Proton Industries due to company guidelines, instead it networks with lab equipment in proximity through MAISON's hardware.

Woodrugh constantly tweaks and updates the software to his needs. His goal is to eventually, perhaps, create a fully operational Concierge Unit built from this weak AI. Something that is not conscious, but is orders of "magnitude" more intelligent than its contemporaries; a powerful, operator-oriented processing unit. Its code designed to adapt to the routines and personality of its owner, extrapolating a personality of its own based on an internally constructed psychological profile.

The final Comp/Con unit will approximate a real personal assistant, but when faced with novel situations will show its artificiality.

Footnotes:
[1]: SPINE CAN FOLD INWARDS FOR A PLACEMENT ON A FLAT SURFACE (END-TABLE, ETC.).
[2]: THE PADS THEMSELVES ARE NOT ADHESIVE, ONLY THE SURFACE THAT REQUIRES A SOFT ELECTRIC CURRENT TO FACILITATE CONTACT. THEY ARE CUSHIONED AND POROUS.
[3]: VPN UTILIZES DESIGNER POLYMORPHIC ENCRYPTION.
[4]: MAISON CAN OPERATE FOR 12 HOURS BEFORE NEEDING TO BE PLACED ON A WIRELESS CHARGER PAD.
