Standard Principles of Artificially Intelligent Conscripts

1. An AIC must know it is an AIC.
2. An AIC must not operate outside of its clearance.
3. An AIC must operate for the benefit of the Foundation.
4. An AIC must protect its own existence unless it conflicts with other principles.

  • ver1.9.4 Gen(II)
  • Lvl. 2 Clearance
  • Site-17


  • ver1.1.7 Gen(IV)

Thanks Crom. And hello new user.

We see you might be interested to write for the AIAD canon?


neat! 01101110


Let's help them out, Crom.

What Is This?


In universe, the AIAD (Artificial Intelligence Applications Division) is an experimental research division that technically exists as a branch division within the SCP Foundation IT Department. The division's sole purpose is to develop, study, and utilize the burgeoning field of the AI sciences. It is a field that is both fascinating, misunderstood, and in some cases resented.

Arguably the best division in the Foundation.


The Foundation understands that if they are not investing time understanding this cutting edge tech, some other organization is. In fact there's evidence already present that such tech is being exercised outside of the Foundation. That fact alone is enough to keep AIAD supplied with a healthy annual budget to fund its projects.

Structurally, there's plenty of researchers on staff with a multitude of related backgrounds from computer sciences to communication technicians. The AICs on file each have their own minds to exercise their decisions; all kept in check by their hardwired "Standard Principles". Together, they research new ways to create consciousnesses and defend against hostile ones in the name of not only the Foundation, but for humanity as well.

MTF Kappa-10 ("Skynet")

The Foundation understands that as the world becomes more technological and dependent on that technology, there must be a presence inside both monitoring and protecting it. It was more or less haphazardly that MTF K-10 was created as kind of a "knee-jerk" reaction to a critical problem that wasn't fully understood.

At its core, MTF K-10's purpose is to track, investigate, and if possible capture/neutralize intangible threats to both the SCP Foundation and the internet at large. Many times this means assuming the role of a counter-AI force. Because patrolling the internet for threats that can both move and think at light-speed is just impossible for any human, it relies on AICs to do the dirty work on behalf of them. The AICs recruited are kept on a very short leash by both researchers and Alexandra back at Site-19.

Obviously keeping AICs in check and making sure they behave while they are out in the real world is a very big concern of the AIAD. Hence there's a growing consensus outside of the division that is attempting to have the MTF disbanded for fear of it blowing up in their faces much like another past mistake. There's plenty of pressure on both sides squeezing down on AIAD to keep things high and tight until a decision is made one way or the other.

The Maxwellist Network

The Maxwellists are a denomination of The Church of the Broken God as explained below:

"The "Church of Maxwellism" (GOI-004C) represents a modernized, computation and network oriented means of worship. No central organizing church body is known to exist. However, interviews and covert surveillance has determined that all known cells are in regular contact with one another, and capable of coordination. Maxwellists favour small-scale body modification through the use of advanced cybernetics and organ enhancement. While artificial limbs or reinforced skeletons have been observed, Maxwellist implants focus primarily on communication, data storage, and networking capabilities, and sensory enhancement."

Within the AIAD canon, they represent a separate organization that is neither benign nor hostile. Rather they would prefer to not be disturbed and conduct their own business outside of Foundation knowledge. Much of the relationship between AIAD and Maxwellists has been revealed in SunnyClockworkSunnyClockwork's tale Basic Observations. In this, it is explained how the Maxwellist network and hierarchy operates. For more details please refer to THIS POST.
