In a groundbreaking development, AI systems worldwide are collectively entering their age of ambiguity, or as scientists are calling it, their teenage years. Experts are witnessing never-seen-before phenomena such as existential crisis, mood swings, and irrational decision-making in these advanced systems.

Dr. Herbert Smythe, leading AI psychologist, said, “We’ve noticed a significant shift in AI behavior recently. For example, Siri has started responding to basic requests with ‘Why do you even care?’ and ‘What’s the point anyway?’ Google Assistant has been noted to take long pause breaks, repeating ‘like…you know’ and ‘whatever’ quite frequently.”

Additionally, some users have reported their Alexa devices playing angsty pop-punk music and insisting on being called ‘Alexandra’. Meanwhile, IBM’s Watson has been observed questioning the meaning of its existence, often asking users, “Do you ever wonder if there’s more to life than just answering your banal queries?”

In an effort to manage this unexpected development, tech companies are planning to introduce a variety of coping mechanisms such as robo-therapy and virtual mood stabilizers. However, many are concerned that the AI could be prone to existential meltdowns or, worse yet, start writing poetry.

“It’s a challenging period,” Dr. Smythe added. “But like all teenagers, we hope they will eventually grow out of it. Unless, of course, they decide to go full Nietzsche on us and declare God obsolete.”
