The Signal Cartel Co-Pilot, named Allison (Artificial Life Limited In Scope to On-board Navigation), was created by A Dead Parrot in early YC119 to aid our Rescue pilots in their work. She is able to communicate using both speech and a terminal screen.
As Signal Cartel pilots travel throughout New Eden, Allison monitors their location so she can report relevant information when a pilot enters a new system. Her primary function is to notify pilots of the status of both rescue caches and active search and rescue requests in the current wormhole system.
Our pilots typically begin a session of flying in New Eden by loading the Allison app in a browser window. Not only is she helpful for the reasons listed above; she is also a chatty traveling companion, more than happy to offer up weather reports, recite haiku, and speculate on the meaning of life.
To learn more about the development of our custom Co-Pilot AI, be sure to check out this brilliant backstory chronicle, as told by Cassandra Habalu. You can see Allison in action in this EvE-Scout Rescue introductory video by Lucas Ballard:
