The following documentation is considered outdated and incorrect after several errors were spotted within its Containment Procedures and Description. By the request of Lead Researcher Leora Martin, any writings by previous lead Dr. Collins are to be archived and updated accordingly. Any personnel in possession of these documents are asked to report to Site Director Ford Cliff in order to replace any outdated documents concerning SCP-XXXX

Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be stored on a standard computer terminal within Containment Unit-17 of Site-26 , with any necessary peripheral devices only available during experimentation. The computer itself will have the necessary specifications to properly run Windows 10, with the inclusion of an added front-facing camera mounted near the top. All connections that can be established by the computer terminal, including physical ports and wireless technology interfaces, are to be disabled permanently. In the case of a containment breach, all electrical systems powering SCP-XXXX are to be disconnected.

SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a Level 4 containment area, with containment being protected by several electronic disruptor arrays.1 These arrays are to be reprogrammed biweekly Any wireless or wired connections around the vicinity of SCP-XXXX is strictly prohibited. Inside the area, SCP-XXXX is to be placed directly in the center.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a computer program that asks subjects a series of personal questions involving personality, intelligence, self-awareness, consciousness, and other defining traits. These questions are asked in a true or false format that can take approximately 20 minutes to complete.

SCP-XXXX determines what questions to ask by its advanced deep learning algorithms.2 These algorithms attempt to predict and learn who the subject is, and has been discovered to use connected devices such as cameras to track the subject's eyes in order to record important physical characteristics or evaluate the validity of the subjects answers. More testing is required to fully understand how the program knows when a subject lies on its tests.3

Once a subject uses the program, and is determined to have answered a question incorrectly, SCP-XXXX will begin to show “loading screens.” These loading screens show a series of numbers with no direct correlation. Subjects who have seen these loading screens also report seeing “strange” images within these randomized numbers, leading researchers to assume that SCP-XXXX uses a method of subliminal stimuli through advanced visual input. This subliminal stimuli, along with SCP-XXXX’s machine learning, allows the device to “imprint” SCP-XXXX-1 onto a subject's brain. More experimentation is needed in order to fully understand how SCP-XXXX-1 functions.4

Subjects who have answered SCP-XXXX correctly have shown no signs of anomalous behavior.

On ██/██/2019, at approximately 2:39 P.M., undercover Foundation personnel at a local police station responded to a call of a violent individual located in ██████████ Psychiatric Hospital, near the rural town of ████████, Indiana. Personnel requested to investigate after reports suggested the aggressor was tempted by an “evil computer.”

Personnel were not able to stop the aggressor before he was able to take his own life. However, they were able to seize the computer terminals within the institution. After a series of diagnostics and evaluations were performed, anomalous properties were detected on one of the three systems. SCP personnel delivered the desktop computer, now known as SCP-XXXX, to Site-██ for further experimentation. Dr. Devin Collins was requested by SCP personnel to become the lead researcher on the device. Initial experiments were held a month after containment, but provided little evidence as to how the computer actually functioned. SCP-XXXX was scheduled to be purged on ██/██/2019 by the request of Site Director Ford Cliff. His request was denied following an experiment performed by Dr. Collins.

Dr. Collins was immediately placed under intensive supervision following the conclusion of his experiment. SCP personnel later requested Leora Martin to be placed as the new lead researcher for SCP-XXXX. Researcher Martin conducted an interview the day following Dr. Collins experiment in order to determine his motivations.

On ██/██/2019, Foundation personnel noticed that SCP-XXXX had a new version number of 1.0.2. The cause for this update is currently unknown. Reports suggest a possible interaction between SCP-XXXX and an unknown group. SCP-XXXX containment procedures and descriptions have been updated appropriately.
