Moon Collider, the creator of the Kythera AI system, is now able to announce their 'secret' licensee as Chris Roberts' Cloud Imperium Games. Star Citizen will use Kythera for its "dynamic AI" with NPCs and ships.

In fact the first taste of Kythera in Star Citizen will be possible with the Dogfighting Module, as pilots engage other players and AI. Kythera gives NPCs their own individualistic quirks.
