    Hello, I have just learned of this website, Akinator.com. I have done about 10 runs and each time he has guessed my answer. It is similar to 20 questions which is very easy to understand how that figures it out. But I want to know with your infinite knowledge if he does the same thing but on the web, or something else.

    Thank you so much,
    John

      Lol damn you for showing me this. I've just played it 3 times and it's got the answer right all times. I'm addicted. I can't understand how it's getting the answer. I think it's just been really cleverly programmed. The website looks crap but it's still quite fun.

      I have defeated it at the second try, by using a character from a novel it didn't know. Then it asked me to fill in my character's name and some additional hint for better identification. I think it is expanding its database from such input, plus doing a lot of web crawling.

      Anyway, it's impressive.

      Now Akinator knows Able the Octopus, mascot of Able Tool Rental.


      I used to test the early search engines with "Kermit the Frog dandruff". Google still doesn't pass entirely. Some questions we'll just have to check by logic.
