This month, this site’s views passed half a million! I would like to thank each and every one of my readers… so please send me your home address and phone numbers. Please also include a photo, so when I show up at your door no thanks will be wasted on non-readers.
A new link has been added to this site: The Akinator! This genius genie will guess any character you have in mind, alive or dead, real or imagined.
A partial explanation to how the Akinator can narrow down choices so efficiently is that…” If each question could eliminate half of the possibilities, then the computer could use 19 questions to distinguish between 524,288 (or 2^19) different possible answers” per the AI Guy
Additionally, Akinator gains information from the feedback of each person who uses the system, differentiating itself from excellent Chat Bot systems like A.L.I.C.E.
This is all way cool!
