AI Wants to Play with You

No, seriously. The Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (the “Allen” being Paul Allen, the co-founder of Microsoft) has a Pictionary style game online where you can literally play with AI:

Play Pictionary with AI

It’s actually a lot of fun, and will give you an insight into just how good AI is getting at understanding shapes, phrases, etc. I’m a pretty terrible artist – even my stick figures look bad lol – and I am amazed at how well it guesses what I’m trying to draw. You can play either side: draw, and have it guess, or – and I find this one particularly fascinating – let it “draw,” and you guess the phrase.

It’s one thing to read about the progress of AI – another thing entirely to actually experience for yourself, and have fun while doing it. Give it a shot, and leave a comment below to let me know what you thought. Cheers!
