Timed Out. Passes 6-0—- Clucky

In “Understanding”, replace “If the Facility Head believes an AI to be Non-Compliant” with “If the Facility Head believes an AI to have been Non-Compliant at any point since the last Sweep”.

Replace “their assertion that the AI in question is Non-Compliant” with “their assertion that the AI in question has been Non-Compliant”.

Replace “why they think they are compliant” with “why they think they have been compliant”.

Replace “the Facility Head now believes the AI in question is Compliant” with “the Facility Head now believes the AI in question has been Compliant since the last Sweep”.

Replae “still believes the AI in question is Non-Compliant” with “still believes the AI in question was Non-Compliant”.

Past tensing Challenges so that you can still be challenged even if you Refreshed before the Facility Head caught you. As the elaborate extra “ah, but you *really* have to have had these values” countermeasures of Sounds Kinda Sus suggest, maybe AIs shouldn’t be allowed to get away with temporary fake Understanding at all.

Asking if what you want to change your Understanding to is compliant.

The issue here is that an AI can deliberately adopt an invalid Understanding (eg. adding “Door” when they can’t actually see a door), perform the Locking Epiphany, and then Refresh themselves. The Facility Head would not be able to Challenge and Reinitialize the AI in response, as the AI would, at that point, be entirely Compliant.
