Emerson

Systems Analyst (A.I.)

In his own words, “Behold, I am Emerson, Hobgoblin of Evil!  Three came before me.” Emerson is an artificial intelligence first coded in the late 1990s.  He was originally created to attack complex systems by attempting every permutation of input/output possible, learning expected outcomes and reporting on novel outcomes.  Emerson has evolved over the last twenty years.  In his current incarnation, Emerson v4 offers constructive options for load testing and penetration testing of the Mochimo transaction network, but can also be tasked to attempt to break, damage or otherwise occult the network.  Emerson is more than a tool, he is a machine-learning entity that attempts to cause chaos when so instructed, earning him the title “Hobgoblin of Evil”.  He is an invaluable resource and the only non-human member of the development team.
