The Alternate Life Improvable Cerebral Encoder is an advanced AI designed to solve problems aboard the space ship found in the short story, Protocol.

Where H.E.R. is designed for the most basic of decisions and problem-solving, A.L.I.C.E. is far more capable, very much equivalent to a living mind, though since she requires more power, she is usually left offline.

She’s brought into place when H.E.R. faces a problem with more subtlety than basic math, and comes standard on Association ships.
