A '''droid''' is an [[artificial intelligence|artificially intelligent]] automaton built to perform a job in the ''[[Star Wars]]'' galaxy.  Droids vary widely in form and capability, depending on their job requirements. A few types of droid (notably Cybot Galactica's 3PO series of protocol droids and Industrial Automaton's R2 Astromech Droids) are [[Sapience|sapient]].

Expense appears to be a significant factor in droid design, and the AI component seems to be a cost driver. [[Battle droid]]s that are expendable and manufactured in large numbers appear to be quite stupid, while droids designed for sophisticated tasks like [[starship]] repair or medical functions seem to be much smarter.
