What is a learning computer? Edit

Is it something relative to the Saints Row universe? I Wikipedia'd it and found nothing. – Moozipan Cheese(talk page) 17:06, August 10, 2013 (UTC)

In the newscast, Jane Valderamma refers to it as a supercomputer, so I guess that's what it is. I've never heard the term "learning computer" though. Question answered. – Moozipan Cheese(talk page) 17:22, August 10, 2013 (UTC)
In general, it is what it sounds like. A computer capable of learning. :P
The mission title always confused me too. I don't know whether the computer in the mission is supposed to have advanced AI, and I'm not aware of it being a specific reference to something in pop culture. It's not really a popular term, kinda like calling a "flash drive" a "jump key" or something.
Here's an article from 1998 which uses the term. -452 23:07, August 10, 2013 (UTC)
It likely comes from a quote in Terminator 2: "My CPU is a nueralnet processor, a learning computer." I should have known that. Terminator 2 likely embedded the term "learning computer" as a "normal term" for AI, so I didn't notice it was a specific reference. -452 23:08, August 10, 2013 (UTC)

...and it already says that in the article. Nevermind then. -452 23:10, August 10, 2013 (UTC)
