Akinator the web genie!


Make way for Akinator the web genie! He possesses magical powers, and will read your mind!

Just think of any TV character you like. Or movie character, or even a member of your family. Answer 20 simple questions and Akinator will probe into your mind and tell you what character you're thinking about!

Try to have him guess your favorite Pushing Daisies characters. It's a lot of fun. And Akinator is very smart, as he speaks English, German or Portuguese, so everybody here can play.










OK, OK. Sorry to burst your bubble, but Akinator is not *really* magical. It's more like an Artificial Intelligence interface connected to a huge TV and movie database. You know if he's on the right track depending on the questions he asks.

And sometimes the mistakes are funnier than the ones he gets right. I was thinking of Ned, and he asked me if the character was seductive and in a comedy. I answer "yes" for both instances, and Akinator gave me Horrowitz from "The Big Bang Theory." Seductive... Comedy... All right!

Another time I tried to get Emerson Cod. He was on the right track. He asked me if my character was detective, black and had no hair. Yes, yes and yes! Then he gave me Sgt. Doakes from Dexter!

When he makes a mistake, you can either mark your character's name from a list, or even write hisor her name, so next time you play, Akinator will know more about your preferences, and the character becomes more popular, so more likely to be chosen by other people as well. In other words, as an A.I., Akinator learns!

So I played again and bingo!



So, what are you waiting for? Akinator is waiting for you!
