All the other Stack Exchange sites link to the same username, but for some reason the AI site changed my username to a25bedc5-3d09-41b8-82fb-ea6c353d75ae.

Why did that happen and how can I fix it?

As mentioned by Rory Alsop, you've run into this Stack Exchange bug or something related. You can manually fix your profile by editing it on this site, or by opening your profile settings on a different site and choosing Save and copy changes to all Stack Exchange communities.
