Unfortunately, most of that side of Decker's character development was cut out of the movie, so his motivations were left rather unclear.
And I learned about it only because I read Ex Machina. The passage where Kirk describes his conversations with Decker's mother were extremely helpful in understanding his character. I liked that Kirk admitted his own assumptions about Decker were wrong, as he'd inferred that Decker had the same goals for himself that Kirk did.
