I'm trying to get a better understanding for how an AI like GERTY (from the 2009 film Moon
) would work under the hood.

For one thing, would he be a true AI, or just exceptionally good at analyzing data to spit out appropriate responses? If he is a true AI, what sort might he be? How might his creators have solved the "Friendly AI" problem or prevented him from spiraling off in a singularity-type scenario, wherein his own capabilities increase at a superhuman speed and catapult him outside of our ability to understand or control?
Online articles or in-thread explanations would be excellent! Although please keep in mind that I'm not a computer programmer or engineer myself, and as such there's only so much technical detail I can digest.
