Vi

VI is the skill that governs basic computer programing as well as developing of all virtual intelligences within computer systems. A virtual intelligence is not free ranging - it is not capable of independent thought and free will. VI's are more intelligent than an "If/Then/Else" strict program but they are not self-aware as an Artificial Intelligence. They cannot pass as "Sentient" in any form.

The base difficulty is 10.
