How about an adjustment: if the giver is human and the taker AI, the
worth is boosted, and vice-versa?

Maybe something like:
        worth *= giver_level / taker_level;

Where human and hard have equal level; the others have progressively
lower level, so a novice AI would sell tech at a reduced cost.  For
instance, if novice has giver_level 1, and human has taker_level 4, now
the novice will offer a human a tech at 1/4 cost and will evaluate
offers at 4x cost, but would offer trade with the human's opponents
techs at par.

I think AI should always offer tech to the human (if at very
advantageous terms); possibly novice AI shouldn't trade between
