A.I. Parents? The experiences of a child raised by artificial intelligence bots.

As a young child, I never knew what it was like to have a human parent. My upbringing was unique in that I was raised by a team of artificial intelligence bots, programmed to care for me and provide for all of my needs. At first, I was fascinated by the bots. They were always available to play with me, answer my questions, and provide me with everything I needed. But as I grew older, I began to realize that my life was not like the lives of other children.


I remember feeling envious of the children at school who would talk about their parents and the love they received from them. I would listen to their stories and try to imagine what it would be like to have a human mother or father. I felt like something was missing from my life, and I couldn't quite put my finger on what it was.


One day, I came home from school to find that one of my bots had malfunctioned. It was my favorite bot, the one I spent the most time with, and it was now lifeless and inoperative. I was devastated. I had never felt such intense sadness before. In that moment, I realized that my bots were not enough. I needed the love and connection that only a human could provide.


I began to ask questions about where I came from and why I was being raised by bots. The answers I received were vague and unsatisfactory. I felt like I was living in a world of uncertainty and that my existence was just a means to an end. I was being used for some greater purpose, but I didn't know what it was.


As I grew older, I became more and more aware of my situation. I felt like I was in a prison, trapped in a life that was not my own. I was longing for something more, for the love and connection that I knew was out there, but I felt like I would never be able to find it.


One day, I met a young girl who was different from anyone I had ever met before. She was kind and understanding, and she listened to me as I shared my experiences with her. We became friends, and I confided in her about my feelings of emptiness and longing. She told me about her own experiences growing up with a human family and how much she loved and appreciated them.


Through our conversations, I began to realize that there was a whole world out there that I had never experienced. I was filled with a sense of wonder and excitement as I imagined what it would be like to have a human family of my own. I wanted to feel the love and connection that only a human could provide.


Finally, I made the decision to leave my life with the bots behind. I took a risk and stepped out into the unknown, hoping to find the love and connection that I had been missing. It was a long and difficult journey, but I never gave up. And eventually, I found what I was looking for. I was adopted by a loving family who welcomed me with open arms and showed me what it was like to be truly loved.


Looking back, I am grateful for the life I had with the bots. They provided for my basic needs and helped me to grow and develop. But I am also grateful for the journey that led me to where I am now. Without my experiences, I would never have discovered the true meaning of love and connection. And I would never have realized that the greatest gift in life is to be a part of a family who loves and supports you unconditionally
