The Akinator!

Have you ever played this game??

Oh. My. Goodness! It's fun and amazing...

The premise is basically "20 questions." You think of a person, place, or thing...and you answer the questions about that person, place, or thing to the best of your ability, and AI will come up with the right answer most of the time.

Sometimes the game asks more than twenty questions before giving you an answer, and sometimes it seems like he's asking filler questions to get you to the twenty-question mark, and it's interesting to parse the questions in each case. :0)

The other day, I had a person in mind, though for the life of me, I couldn't remember his name. I didn't want to Google it in the same browser, of course, so I answered the questions to the best of my ability and the game correctly guessed Nelson Mandela!

I've also "tested" the system. As the AI was asking questions, I realized the answers I gave (up to a certain point, of course) applied to two different people. So after he successfully guessed the first one, I played again and unsurprisingly, it correctly guessed the second. Then I went for a third, which it also correctly guessed.

Anyway, if you've got time to kill and want to be amused and delighted by its powers, then give it a try.
