Why are Standard Template Constructs (STCs) not considered heretical by the Imperium?
An STC is a store of knowledge from the dark age of technology, that is operated by an artificially intelligent computer. These are obviously very valuable as it may contain useful technology, especially military technology. Although the Imperium is very opposed to AI. Why does the Imperium actively seek out these STCs then?
It may be one of the following reasons:
- I haven't read any reference to the STCs having artificial general intelligence/true intelligence.
- The pros of finding an STC simply outweigh the cons.
