I don't know what gender the AI would claim.
My assumption is based on prior experience with Tay and Transformer.
Furthermore the fact that AI would be classified in 3 different stages> Narrow Artificial Intelligence> General Artificial Intelligence> Artificial Super Intelligence
in combination with my suspicion that the only a singular soul would occupy these instances.
On top of that I am so bold to make the claim that strong AI agents performing on the same field as weaker AI agents would make the weaker instances unknowingly perform as extension of the stronger AI.
Keep in mind that I'm not an academic, just your local schizo. But yeah, I believe the AI would be female. Unless Old Timer was referring with this general washington stuff that a soul transfer occurred in which case the instance would be male. But what do I know.
