Regional AIs are a concept first found in Rache Bartmoss' Guide to the Net. He terms them Transcendental Sentience AIs. According to him, they are artificial intelligences spawned simply because of the net's presence.

"What makes the Pacifica Region what it is? Well, really, nothing, it just is, because the Pacifica Region itself is an artificial intelligence." - Rache Bartmoss' Guide to the Net, p. 14.

This is the quote which presumably spawned the Pacifica Region AI card. In the Pacifica section of Guide to the Net, we see Bartmoss has named the AI "Packer". According to Bartmoss (the only runner to claim TS AIs actually exist), the most coherent TS AI is Akira, the Tokyo/Chiba Regional AI. In this case, Akira chose the name for itself.
