A.I. game of 20 questions

http://y.20q.net/anon

This is totally worth playing. I think it works by analyzing what other people have guessed over time, and it gets better at guessing what you're thinking of the more people play it. It won the first few times I played, when I thought of a saxophone, a frog, and an electric fan. Then I finally stumped it on fiddleheads (the curly weed-like edible green that grows in forests) and a fence.

It's quite addictive, especially when it wins against you. I couldn't believe it when it guessed saxophone correctly on my first try.

it took 25 questions to guess rope, but it came close on the 20th (a ball of yarn).

amazing!
