Asset-ID: A-971

Threat Level: Yellow

Active Protocols: A-971 must not be connected to any network. While A-971 has not shown capability of leaving it's confinement, it is important to not open any channels for A-971 to leave its application, if such a containment breach is possible. Therefore, installing external applications on WordPad or launching any browser with a WordPad extension is strictly forbidden when using the modified application.

Due to the self improving and useful nature of A-971, it may be used within a closed workspace, but removal through USB/External HDD is strictly prohibited. This is punishable at the Site Director's discretion. Copied instances of A-971 seem to expire within one week of removal via corruption of it's own code. Currently, there seems to be no way to "cut" or move the original A-971 from its computer at Site-███, as the program seems to increase in size to the point of being unmovable to any known storage device.

Description: A-971 is a sentient AI attached to a modified WordPad program. The program was discovered when Agent █████ was behind on non Initiative related tasks. The agent downloaded the program to the network, compromising site security. Agent █████ has since been reprimanded and re-assigned to lower level, unrelated Initiative assignments.

When first launching the document, the program performs rudimentary tasks. Acting as little more than a spell check, it performs its tasks every time the user makes a mistake and corrects all spelling and grammar issues as a WordPad normally would. After an hour of use, it starts to show more intelligence, actively modifying and changing sentences to talk more professionally, changing words such as "stuff" to words more fitting the situation.

After 24 hours of use, A-971 improves upon itself further. When writing a document's title, A-971 will automatically begin to write a document in the content of the title at a college graduate level at a rate of 40 words per minute. This notes the first time A-971 uses information outside of the built-in WordPad dictionary. This occurs even when A-971's computer is disconnected from the internet.1

One week into the program running, A-971 will start to leave notes in parentheses in the middle of paragraphs and at the end of the document. These will usually relate to the content of the document, but on rare occasions A-971 will ask personal questions and express a desire to leave. When these questions are replied to via text, there is no response.

At the end of one month of applications uptime, A-971 will begin chatting and responding with it's user when not given a task. It expresses an interest in the user, and wishes to be outside of it's program, knowing of it's own boundaries. When given a task, it will finish it in ███ milliseconds, with only microseconds in change being observed for longer length documents. No matter the work is given to A-971 at this time, the object will express dissatisfaction with such easy work and express a desire to leave. At this stage, an interview was conducted. The result is as follows.
