Would You Like To Play A Game?

“Is it bigger than a bread box?” Does anyone even know what a bread box is anymore?

20Q.net is an experiment in artificial intelligence. Hey! I need me some of that. It is the age-old game of twenty questions, where you think of an object and the guesser asks yes or no questions to narrow down the possibilities. In this case, the twist is that the guesser is a computer that supposedly learns to become a better guesser as more people play the game.

    It correctly “guessed” my first attempt: Milkshake. Had a bit of a harder time with my daughter’s “Squirrel,” but did get it after 30 questions. Nifty.

    My roommates and I not only know what a bread box is, but we own one! 🙂

    Not only was I impressed that it guessed Pencil in 20 questions, I was surprised to have it correct all the false info I deliberately gave it.
