Let's Play Twenty Questions

Recommended Posts

Go to this site: http://y.20q.net:8095/btest

Go ahead and mess with the thing a little. There's a couple things I should point out before people start thinking they're "outsmarting the program,"





* First of all, if you aren't 100% ABSOLUTELY sure of the answer, hit unknown. It doesn't count against you, it just goes to the next question, and it's more fair to the AI to give it information you know is true.

* Second, this AI is determined by the answers people feed it, so sometimes it'll give you total hoo-haa because some retard out there told the program that grasshoppers can speak German.





Anyway I played with it for a while and it seems most accurate at figuring out animals. To date I haven't found an animal it couldn't guess (or guess very close to, as in the emu test proved; it guessed ostrich).

And please don't give it wrong information. ;)

The site said:

The object you think of should be something that most people would know about, but, never a specific person, place or thing.

It usually classifies humans or human roles as "other," did you use that or animal?

Anyway yeah, most stuff like that it's not very good at yet.

I played that thing for a while, but eventually it got really bad. It kept asking questions like "Would Michael Jordan (basketball player) use it?", "Can it be used by a cowboy?", and "Does it bring people joy?"

It doesn't seem to narrow it down anymore. It just asks random questions, and rarely gets close to guessing what I'm imagining.

I chose penguin (since I know a bit about them now, having seen one and watched lots of documentaries about Antarctica recently). It guessed it right after 28 questions, despite having some seriously wrong information in its database.

Similar Objects
a dolphin, a rock band, a mermaid, a dwarf, a cormorant, a firefighter, Spiderman (superhero), an elf, a magician, a toad, a pelican, a hippopotamus.

WTF?

Its last few questions before guessing correctly suggested it had lost the scent completely (e.g. "Is it a rock band?").

It claimed these contradictions:

Is it small? You said No, I say Yes.
Does it jump? You said Yes, I say No.
Can you smell it? You said Probably, I say No.

Small? They can be well over a meter in height, and at least 40 kg. I have actually seen one jump. And I doubt they are odourless.

It's amazing that it actually worked. It probably would have got there quicker if I had answered "Yes" to "Is it similar to a dolphin?".

AndrewB: Judging from my experience, I'd imagine it was trying to eliminate things from its "similar" lists - some of which may have been gibberish.

Edit: Haha, it got "quasar" in just 19 questions. It didn't even need to ask if it was similar to a tree stump or a garden hose.

Well, like it says, it's based on what people tell it, so it's only as smart as that.

Yes, it seems to ask really obscure questions, yet still gets them right.

"Is it pink?"
"No."
"Is it a type of cheese?"
"No."
"Is it staple-like in appearance?"
"No."
"Ah, it must be a cricket."
"WTF..."
