    Default Think of any character and Akinator will guess who it is.

    Not sure if this should be under the Science, Technology, and Future Tech forum but hey, posting it here so people who usually don't visit there can have a go at it.

    Akinator, the Web Genius

    Just think of any character, be it real or fictional and answer a couple of yes/no questions.

    He is not perfect, but that's a pretty incredible AI there.

    Edit: Changed the title to make it sound more interesting.

    Wow, this is interesting. I just played it about ten times. A few times I could kind of see the approach and the correct guess wasn't surprising. But a few times I picked a relatively obscure character and it guessed right with only a few questions that didn't seem particularly revealing. It was startling.

    I'm sure it just seemed like the questions weren't revealing. Each question narrows the field by a quarter or a third or a half, and I guess that pretty quickly leads to a few possible options.

    I tried having him guess Sylar from Heroes and he came up with Wonderwoman first, but he came up with Sylar after that!

    Pretty cool.

    This is heaps of fun. I was impressed that it got Taikoubou on the second try.

    It didn't get Bug, though.

    I was impressed how it got some rather vague characters, like Kafka's Josef K. and Camus' Meursault correct. (Josef K. only after further questioning though.)

    I stumped it. It was fun, though!

    I beat it with Bean from Ender's Game. Though I might've accidently answered a question wrong.

    Pretty cool!

    50% - I tried it twice, got it right the first time: Anne Shirley

    Second time, it guessed Ann Coulter when I was thinking of Jane Goodall*. EPIC FAIL!

    *might have been the "is your character blonde" - I answered yes, as she is a blondie but due to age, it's white.....maybe I should have answered that differently?

    So, I went on, and it's next guess was Drew Barrymore.....and went on still, to give me Nancy Pelosi. And, then it said I defeated it.

    (at least I prepped it, with my response trend, to pick out Jane Goodall for the next player)
