^Likely, it does not factor any residual damage by an opponent's Life Orb when perceiving its own future options. That is what I assumed, anyway. (Looks like someone beat me to it.)
I remember seeing something about this several months ago and it interests me. I have been curious about one thing since then, which was whether or not Technical Machine will develop its own teams, but you seemed to have mostly answered it in the first post. Tell me, will it be gathering data from the opponents it faces or has already faced in order to create a team? If so, how will it go about this? Will it use what it found to be most effective from opposing teams, what could be used to gain the advantage over previously-seen pokemon, or some combination of the two?
In any case, no need for me to mention that this is an impressive feat, as many have probably already told you as much.
