RE: Can you defeat Akinator the web genie?
I used an obscure video game character (Capt Nick 'Havoc' Parker, a GDI Commando from the Command and Conquer RTS series) which the genie could not guess, even after 80 questions or so.

Keep in mind, every time you enter the name of a character which the script could not guess, you are adding a new entry into its database and it is becoming 'smarter' or rather aware of that character. So your participation is is not forgotten. After a few million iterations of this it will 'recall' nearly every character in literature, arts, movies, etc.

Dear god.


We're making a smart, trivia based Siri?


At least we don't have to worry about this AI taking over the world.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

The genie also could not guess Seth Andrews / The Thinking Atheist.

Sorry, Seth. You're not famous enough for an internet genie! Sad

That bastard of a genie obviously doesn't have his shit straight.

I beat it with Admiral David Farragut, famous for his actions in the Spanish-American War and the American Civil war, most often remembered with the quote "Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead!". It guessed about 4 famous American Navy Admirals, but not Admiral Farragut.

He guessed my dr. Albert Hofmann. Took him a lot of questions, but he did it... It seems that over 2200 people were thinking of Albert Hofmann...
