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

He got mine but it took 2 tries.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Re: AI to detect celebrity you're thinking of

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!

Re: AI to detect celebrity you're thinking of

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!
