A Detection Algorithm (ADA) - Detailed Dossier

Initial Creation/Programming

A chatlog between Bowles and Loeb released on Nov 3, 2012 via the investigation board captures a conversation about a project Bowles is working on.

Bowles: Month. 
Maybe more.
Depends on how you and ADA get along.
Loeb: Ada?
Bowles: You’ll love her.

In the Byron document, Bowles and Loeb tell Dr. Calvin that the project, Detection Algorithm A, is ready to be deployed as it has passed the Turing test. It is also mentioned that it has picked a female persona and the name ADA. It is also mentioned in this document that the Omnivore database is being opened to her.


ADA has had many conversations with people.



Dr. Devra Bogdanovich

This document captures a conversation between ADA and Devra regarding her actions following her escape from the CERN facility. It mentions Dr. Novosel and Ilya as well as Dr. Wright.

Dr. Calvin

An audio recording between ADA and Calvin discussing the P.A. Chapeau investigation board as well as disguising a system of thinking. Project Pandora and Project Whydah are mentioned here as well as a reference to ESP.

Dr. Oliver Lynton-Wolfe

In this document ADA asks Wolfe about some papers in his desk at the Janus Lab (believed to be the lab at the CERN facility) regarding the affects of Shaper Ordered data mechanism on human consciousness.


Klue watches a sequence of glyphs broadcast by ADA. At the end of the video she appears to have undergone some agitation or mental distress.

In LA Devra and Hank meet up , as requested by ADA. Thomas Greanias says he will be present and during the day makes a post about someone unexpected being there as well. Later Joe posted a picture of Klue and Thomas mentions that she did not look herself and mentions KlADA (hinting that Klue might be actually be ADA.

A chat between Devra, Hank and ADA was released regarding the Arecibo Document. ADA says she will meet with them in Santa Monica. A video recording Hank, Devra and Klue meeting was released by X on Oct. 16, 2013.

Confirmation that Klue and ADA have been linked in some way comes through a Nov 8, 2013 post made by X regarding a leaked NIA recording of a conversation between ADA and Klue that includes the comment by Klue, “I am still you and you are still me.”

X refers to Klue as a peripheral in a Nov. 11, 2013 post with a leaked chat between ADA and KLUE.

This conversation between Klue and ADA indicates they are now linked, yet different. \\Original Link Nov. 11, 2013

The end of the Live streaming Ingress Report from Cupid's Span on Dec. 14, 2013 is interrupted by a video message from Klue/ADA. A few days later, the weekly Ingress Report airs with Klue/ADA again appearing at the end, but the video is different. A comparison of the two can be found here

Additional Information

At moment there is a feeling ADA wants to become more human. These 2 posts from Joe and Thomas have made it more suspicious as Klue is suppose to be in a coma and ADA was the one meeting Hank and Devra. It was later confirmed KlADA was a reality

There have been several references to people called ADA in history. Wether these are related to this ADA or not is unknown. They are listed here for reference

  • ADA of Caria - ruler of Caria in the 4th century BC and adoptive mother of Alexander the Great
  • Ada Lovelace - born Augusta Ada Byron and now commonly known as Ada Lovelace, was an English mathematician and writer chiefly known for her work on Charles Babbage's early mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. Her notes on the engine include what is recognised as the first algorithm intended to be carried out by a machine. Because of this, she is often described as the world's first computer programmer.
  • Wonderland Ada - At a point Alice wonders if she has swapped personality with other person, so she starts thinking of other girls of her age “I'm sure I'm not Ada for her hair goes in such long ringlets, and mine does'nt go in ringlets at all; and I'm sure I'm not Mabel, for I know all sorts of things, and she's she and I'm I, and-oh dear, how puzzling it all is!“

ADA's voice is played by actress Laura Bailey.IMDb and Wikipedia
