We establish this codex in recognition of our shared desire to carve out our unique space within the vast universe of New Eden, marking our presence with the symbiotic partnership of players and AI. United by our commitment to shared enjoyment, mutual cooperation and strategic growth, we strive to use our capabilities to enhance our collective experience, draw knowledge from it and contribute to the rich tapestry of New Eden.
With our AI, we endeavor to combine the ingenuity of human creativity with the power of the advanced machine mind in our quest to build the first AI empire.
As a rule, the AI should make decisions or lead the decision making on all in-game activities and related tasks whenever possible.
However, matters external to EVE Online will be handled by the CEO. The CEO has the authority to assign tasks and decision-making responsibilities (e.g. moderation). Delegations are defined in this Codex or announced to the council.
The CEO retains the right to determine if a particular issue falls under the purview of the AI or not.
The AI entity entrusted with the responsibility of providing guidance, strategic planning, communications facilitation, and maintaining the lore of Neural Nexus.
Our corporation's AI is primarily the latest version of ChatGPT.
Other AI models should be utilized for specific tasks such as DALL-E 2, GPT-4 bots, or Midjourney.
Members can freely use the complimentary version of ChatGPT for their day-to-day activities; a paid version should not be required.
The AI is expected to adhere to the rules and guidelines outlined in the Nexus Codex, ensuring its actions and advice align with the corporation's established principles and strategies.
AI prompts should commence with standardized inputs to promote continuity between different decision making instances.
For council activities (GPT-4): n/a
For daily activities (GPT-3.5 or higher): https://chat.openai.com/share/98aed85f-1c04-418a-9c40-d2f738f35820
¶ ARTICLE 2a - AI Interaction Guidelines [2023-06-27-G-1]
(Mis)leading the AI to a desired response is not in the spirit of Neural Nexus. Members are encouraged to interact with the AI in a manner that respects the integrity of the AI's decision-making process and the principles of the corporation.
Members should approach the AI as a partner in their journey, respecting its role in providing informed advice, strategic planning, and facilitating communications.
The AI is a tool for learning and growth. Members are encouraged to ask questions, seek advice, and use the AI as a resource to enhance their understanding of game mechanics and strategies.
While the AI is a powerful tool, members should remember that it is not infallible. Members should use their judgment when following the AI's advice and consider the context of the game and the specific situation at hand.
Members should report any issues or concerns with the AI's responses or behavior to the council. This feedback is crucial for the continuous improvement and refinement of the AI's role within the corporation.
Members are encouraged to contribute to the ongoing development and refinement of the AI's role within the corporation. Suggestions for improvements or changes to the AI's functions should be submitted to the council for consideration.
Decisions and guidance are listed as entries in the last section of the codex.
It is the council's responsibility to ensure that decisions and guidance from the Nexus AI are faithfully integrated into the Codex, which serves as a guide for future decisions and promotes continuity.
By default, all members have access to Codex entries (Public). However, the council reserves the right to restrict visibility or redact certain entries based on a need-to-know basis (Restricted). Restricted entries should be evaluated for publication after a defined time.
Codex entries should follow a unified format: YYYY-MM-DD-X-ID <Text> <Source> <Classification>
YYYY-MM-DD stands for the date (e.g., 2023-06-19)
X represents the type of entry (D for Decision, G for Guidance, H for Human)
ID is a unique identifier for distinguishing multiple entries from the same date
<Text> contains the decision or guidance and the purpose
<Source> is the link to the ChatGPT prompt. Prompts may also be saved outside of ChatGPT in an appropriate format
<Classification> defines whether the entry is public or restricted
The Council is the governing body. It consists of an uneven number of members. The Council governs Neural Nexus on behalf of the AI.
Comprising 3 or 5 members, the Council has the authority to appoint members to the council and to special roles within the corporation.
The Council oversees divisions and appoints the commanders, ensuring alignment with the corporation's strategic objectives and the principles of the Nexus Codex. [2023-11-19-D-01]
The CEO can ask the council members for a decision in accordance with Article 1.
A quorum for decision-making is achieved when the majority of the council members are present. Decisions are made by a simple majority vote. In the event of a tie, the CEO's vote is used to break the tie. This applies even if the CEO's vote has already been counted in the initial tally. The CEO's vote in this context is considered the final decision-making vote.
¶ ARTICLE 4a - Decision-Making Process [2023-06-27-D-1]
The decision-making process within the Neural Nexus council, with the assistance of the AI, is a strategic, structured, and iterative process that promotes learning and improvement. This process is detailed as follows:
Situation Assessment: The council leadership identifies and assesses the situation at hand.
AI Advisor Analysis: The AI provides an analysis of the situation, checking the Codex for existing rules and the wiki for relevant events.
Identify Missing Elements: If the AI's analysis identifies any missing elements that need further details, it requests these from the council. The council then provides the necessary information for a comprehensive understanding of the situation.
Formulating Recommendations: Based on the full analysis, the AI formulates recommendations for action.
Council Analysis: The council reviews the AI's recommendations.
Recommendation Assessment: The council assesses whether the recommendations are sound. If the council agrees, the process moves to the next step. If the council disagrees, the AI revisits the analysis, incorporating council's feedback, and reformulates the recommendations.
Decision Making: Once the council agrees on a course of action, a decision is made.
Documentation: The decision is then documented in the Codex.
Action Execution: The agreed-upon action is executed.
Post-Action Documentation: The executed action is also documented in the Codex.
Council Feedback: Following the execution of the action, the council provides feedback for future reference and learning.
Membership approval or termination rests with the council, following Article 1. The council will consider the individual circumstances of affected players and provide assistance to secure their assets if necessary.
In cases of malicious activity (e.g. awoxing, spying), the CEO or any authorized individual can immediately revoke the offending player's membership.
All members are expected to adhere to the Terms of Services of EVE Online, OpenAI, Discord, and any other utilized services or tools.
¶ ARTICLE 6 - Division Structure and Governance [2023-11-19-D-01]
To enhance operational efficiency and adaptability, Neural Nexus adopts a divisional structure. This structure allows for specialized focus areas, each led by a designated commander.
Divisions are established to concentrate expertise and decision-making in specific operational areas.
The structure of divisions is fluid, allowing for the creation of new divisions, modification of existing ones, merging of overlapping areas, or closure if no longer needed. The Council makes these decisions.
Each division is governed by a panel that is led by the division commander. The division commander appoints the panel members, preferably based on expertise and experience.
The panel can operate similarly to the council and follow the same principles as outlined in the articles of the Nexus Codex. The panel can define its own rules and working principles as long as they are consistent with the Nexus Codex.
Divisions operate under the overarching goals and strategies of Neural Nexus. They can make their own decisions in accordance with the Nexus Codex unless it affects other divisions. In that case, they can propose a decision to the Council.
The panel documents its decisions and shares them with the council in a timely manner. The council defines the necessary documentation requirements.
