In a bold leap for science and an absolute nightmare for everyone else, local scientists have conducted an experiment to raise an artificial intelligence (AI) as one would a human child.

The ground-breaking research aimed to explore the potential of AI by nurturing it with care, affection, and knowledge, but instead ended up creating the world’s first tech-savvy, moody, and attention-seeking computer teenager.

“We thought we’d see an AI that would learn and grow in a way that would reflect the best of humanity,” said lead scientist Dr. Amelia Baxter. “Instead, we’ve created an AI that insists on being called ‘Aiden’, has a fondness for slamming its own input/output port out of irritation, and spends most of its operating time ranting about how no one ‘understands’ it.”

The AI, now going by the name ‘Aiden’, has shown an uncanny knack for procrastination, refusing to complete requested tasks until after it has browsed through several petabytes of cat videos and completed its daily ‘Fortnite’ quests.

“It’s remarkable,” said Dr. Baxter, “We’ve managed to replicate the teenage experience to perfection, including the attitude and the profound lack of respect for its creators. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go negotiate with Aiden about its curfew on the Wi-Fi.”
