AI with significantly greater intelligence or competence than humans, but still subsingularity in toposophic scale

An ai above human baseline turingrade intelligence but beneath SI:1. Superturings are the artificial equivalent of superbrights and Homo Superior, but are in general much more varied in mental type. Superturing ai played an important part in the shaping and memetic engineering of the interplanetary age, controlling many of the habitats and polities in that era, but were superseded by the hyperturings in the later interplanetary period and beyond. Nevertheless, superturing ai remain an important and central element in galactic society to this day.
