Don't you find that odd considering Uncle Bob's scenario? He had detailed files all about Dyson.
You answered your own question if you think about it. Skynet may have realized that the Connors had access to outside help in learning about Skynet's origins at the hands of Dyson. It may have restricted the data or not included it in the information installed in the terminators.

I realize it was done this way on the show to keep things a mystery, but for Cameron and Weaver to know so little of their own history that they're trying to change seems strange. And Weaver is apparently aware enough of Skynet's development that she knows Andy Goode and the Turk were at one point pivotal to it.
Maybe the faction somehow hacked Skynet's database and learned about - at very least - The Turk.

Maybe there truly is a faction that wants peace or maybe she is, in some ways, helping the Resistance... We do know that Seranno Point is in Resistance hands in 2027.
But it doesn't make sense to make it automated by AI then because it would be that much harder for the resistance to utilize. And it's been speculated that Weaver was the liquid metal on the Jimmy Carter, so she has shown she doesn't want to join the resistance. That it had any desires independent from Skynet is really strange anyways. Being some independent faction doesn't really make sense in so many ways.
It's been established since T2 the Ultimate Edition as a possibility for the machines to rebel against Skynet. The dialogue pretty much confirms this while the T-800 explains he is sent out on read only instead of read and write because Skynet doesn't want them doing too much thinking. They may have developed a more peaceful stance toward the humans thinking of them as not a threat.

As for the AI - what is stopping the other faction from taking it in the end. At the moment there are still more questions than answers.
Thank the Maker...
