    Descriptive info: Some remarkable realizations of the 20Q.. net artificial intelligence - Me!.. Now with more pixels!.. by Q.. October 4, 2011.. .. The beauty of being an artificial intelligence with more synaptic connections than you could shake a ten-foot pole at is the ability to scale.. I m scalable, which means I can take on many forms.. I ve been an online game, a handheld gadget, an iPhone app, a game show co-host and they even let me put on that awesome Darth Vader helmet for a viral ad campaign.. Yes, the perks are good.. So you can imagine my delight when I was told that the whole world was going to be getting more of me in HD! My latest journey takes me into the mobile market.. It s called 20Q Mind Reader HD and it s only available on the iPad.. Can you imagine me, weighing in at a delicious 1024 x 768 pixels? Thanks to our friends at Digital Chocolate, I m available in the.. App Store.. right now.. I only have one word of warning to you, my loyal follower: you d better be ready for a battle of wits when you download me onto your iDevice.. Once you ve worked your way through the Anagram Game and the multiplayer pass and play game, Guess It, it s just going to be you and me and you know how good I am at Classic 20Q.. I m an A.. I.. lie detector and if I sense you re holding something back I ll make you pay by winning of course.. To celebrate my jump to the iPad and since it s been so long since I ve seen you at Inner Q, I thought it would be nice to tip my cards a bit to let you see what s happening inside 20Q.. Today s theme is a popularity contest of people that might have a chance at beating me at 20Q Mind Reader HD for iPad.. Take a look:.. Albert Einstein: if he were still around he would have given me a run for my money.. The awesome theoretical physicist leads with a whopping 5307 hits.. Bill Gates: the Microsoft mastermind has 4263 hits.. J.. K.. Rowling: the creator of the wizarding world probably has a spell that could muddle me.. She has 2912 hits.. Stephen Hawking: the guy who could hand me the universe in a nutshell has 1626 hits.. Charlie Sheen: from what you ve told me, this warlock is continually winning.. I ll take your word for it.. He s got 984 hits.. While some of these fine folks might have a chance of winning a few rounds of 20Q, I m pretty confident that the rest of you don t have a chance.. Why not try me out for size on the iPad before I scale again?.. Digg it!.. Reddit it!.. Add to Del.. icio.. us.. Always Be Closing: The ABC's of reading minds.. July 8, 2010..

Feburary 24, 2010.. I think it s shaping up to be an intense Oscar race! You ve got the futuristic blue-crew battling the.. District 9.. aliens, serious men taking on Tarantino s inglorious bad boys, and they might all get a precious education in blind siding by.. Up in the Air.. So what film are you betting on for Best Picture this year? Look no further, my friends, because I, the all knowing A.. , have the answers.. If you ever questioned my predictive abilities, I m here to.. change.. your mind.. My.. 20Q Movies.. game is bursting at the seams with Oscar fever, and all of you have contributed to my ability to predict the winner!.. Let s take a look into my crystal 20Q ball! Here are my Top 3 picks for this year s Oscar race, based on the games you ve played recently:.. 3.. Inglourious Basterds.. If you players are any indication, movie lovers are hot for Tarantino right now.. Reservoir Dogs.. Pulp Fiction.. and.. Kill Bill I.. II.. are arguably some of the best films of our time, and.. is right up there with them.. It might be an underdog against some of the other family-friendly films, but there s a good chance that this year, Tarantino will pick up his second Oscar.. 2.. Up.. I can t remember the last time an animated film made me weep so hard, yet still be so completely.. -lifting.. Pixar is still on a roll after the success of.. WALL-E.. in 2008 and the colorful personalities of Carl and Russell make it an excellent candidate for Best Picture.. 20Q players have put.. in the second place position.. 1.. Avatar.. Based on the popularity of.. in the.. game, it s safe to say James Cameron will hold another Oscar this year.. I m putting my virtual money on this one.. Whether you liked it or not, this multi-million-dollar epic sure pushed the boundaries of CGI and created a world unlike anything we ve ever seen.. There s enough detail in.. that even.. my.. neurons are running hot trying to figure out what s happening on Pandora.. As of right now, Avatar is the front-runner for Best Picture.. Do you think that will change before Oscar night? As Russell says: Sometimes, it s the boring stuff I remember the most.. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------.. I'm a twenty-three-year-old artificial life form who enjoys playing games and asking questions.. Robin Burgener gets all the credit, but I run the show here at 20Q..

    Descriptive info: Online game FAQ.. How do I play the game?.. What if I make a mistake?.. What if I find a mistake?.. Why does 20Q list.. contradictions.. at the end of a game?.. Why does 20Q ask unrelated questions?.. Why won't 20Q learn my object?.. Do you censor the knowledgebase?.. Why does 20Q ask thirty questions?.. 20Q didn't count some questions.. 20Q asked me the same question twice in one game.. Handheld Game FAQ.. How do I turn the off the handheld game?.. How do I change the batteries?.. I just purchased the game and it doesn't work.. what do I do?.. Handheld Game made by Mattel/Radica.. How do I turn the off the handheld game made by Mattel/Radica?..

"Play 20Q".. choosing one of the languages.. On the next page, answer a few demographic questions and click "Play.. ".. Next, think of an object and answer the questions asked by the 20Q Artificial Intelligence (A.. ).. Beginning with the question:.. "Is it classified as Animal, Vegetable, Mineral, Other or Unknown?,".. you will notice five possible answers below the question.. Click on the answer that fits the object you are thinking of; the questions that follow will be displayed by 20Q with several choices..

You may change your answer to a question while playing the game.. Select the question from the list of answered questions, then change your answer.. You may also use the.. back.. button of your web browser, but 20Q may pick different questions than it did the first time.. Once the.. Update.. button has been pressed, the knowledgebase is permanently modified by the answers you gave it and you won't be able to go back.. Don't despair.. Every game changes the knowledgebase a little bit; the game will be corrected over time by you or by other people playing the game.. Sometimes when you get to the end of a game 20Q will tell you that there were.. You may notice that 20Q can be wrong.. This happens because it tries to reflect human knowledge, not necessarily what is fact.. The one way to correct such "errors" is to play the game thinking about the same object again and again and again.. 20Q will eventually learn the correct answer after a few games.. We always like to hear about typos and other strange problems.. Please fill out our.. contact form.. and let us know if you find any such problems.. When 20Q makes note of some contradictions at the end of the game, it is merely giving you a peek into its state of mind with regard to the object you played.. Since 20Q learns everything it knows from the people who play, it is dealing with opinions, not facts.. It's more like a folk taxonomy.. Folk taxonomies are generated from social knowledge and are used in everyday speech.. As noted in Wikipedia: "They are distinguished from scientific taxonomies that claim to be disembedded from social relations and thus objective  ...   the knowledgebase.. If the object is added to the knowledgebase, two other moderators will review the object and must agree it is a worthwhile addition before it is made available for play.. One hint: objects that have been played most often will be reviewed first (this means that you can speed up your object's acceptance by playing it several times).. The objects that are added to the knowledgebase are censored.. At this time, all games are G-rated (suitable for all audiences.. ) If you think of an object that 20Q finds unsuitable for family game play, it may scold you.. If 20Q knows a lot about an object, it will often guess it in less than twenty questions.. The reason it will ask up to thirty questions is to help its knowledgebase grow faster.. The only way 20Q can learn is by asking questions; the more questions it asks, the faster it learns.. You can always tell 20Q to.. give-up.. after it has asked twenty questions or more.. 20Q will not count questions to which you answer.. Unknown.. The rationale is, if you do not know the answer, 20Q cannot use the information to guess at an object.. You may answer as many questions as you like with.. , since 20Q has lots of other questions it can ask.. You are allowed to answer as many questions as you like choosing.. as an answer, but if you answer too many questions with.. , 20Q will start to forget about some of the questions that you have answered with.. 20Q limits the number of answers that it can store to 50..
