20Q is a computerized game of twenty questions that began as a test artificial intelligence (AI). The principle is that the player thinks of something and the 20Q artificial intelligence asks a series of questions before guessing what the player is thinking. This artificial intelligence learns on its own with the information relayed back to the players who interact with it, and is not programmed. The player can answer these questions with: Yes, No, Unknown, and Sometimes. The experiment is based on the classic word game of Twenty Questions, and on the computer game “Animals,” popular in the early 1970s, which used a somewhat simpler method to guess an animal. I tried it and it correctly guessed what I was thinking of…mind blown!
