Konrad Becker Files – Intelligent Pandemonium

Decentralized Automated Information Systems with EEI (External Environment Interfaces) allow tactical initiatives, yet provide central symbol analysts with intelligence for strategic purposes using people, databases and processors as easily retrievable resources in a network. Autonomous software application systems are called “Agents” or “Demons”. The term demon is appropriate as digital demons are not directly controlled by a master program but rather invoked into actions by changes in their environment. Demons can form computational societies with autopoietic lifelike behaviors similar to insect colonies or other social systems. Just as in the traditional form, the digital demons are at once independent and programmed to respond to certain cues in specific situations and environments. Like their stellar counterparts they can serve or control. (Classic demonology lists an endless series of divisions where demons mediate the complexity of super-celestial information.)
