Wow! I thought of Steve Davis and it correctly guessed my character. Id say that was just a fluke.

He got mine but it took 2 tries.

This thing is scary.

It asked me 19 questions, and I gave it maybe 4 yesses and 15 nos. It didn't seem to be focussing in on anything in particular. As far as I can tell, the only thing it knew about my character is that he is a British adult male who works on TV.

Then out of nowhere, the right answer comes up.

I really have no idea how that could have happened.

Why did the vector cross the road?

It wanted to be normal.

Right twice so far. Good fun!

I think of George Cantor

And in the second round it gives Kurt Gödel

Quite close

I guess we have different classificasion of mathematicians into scientists or nonscientists

I don't think they have Eisenstein in there. Questions kept repeating which meant they reached the end of branch in their tree.

I found this → Guess The Number.

If two or more thoughts intersect, there has to be a point!
