SLIDE 5 (Some A.I. games):
Have students try 20 questions and Akinator. Both are good examples of games that exploit artificial intelligent algorithms.
Whilst it’s not exactly known how Akinator and 20 questions work (both are closely guarded secrets), it is most likely that they both employ a rules-based “fixed intelligence” approach which follows a definite series of rules and instructions. A fixed intelligence approach can be best described using a decision tree.
What makes Akinator so special? Akinator differs slightly from other rule-based approaches by using an A.I. algorithm that learns the best questions to ask through its experience with players.
SLIDE 10 (Chatbots):
Have students try out some of the chatbots (above) and note down any unusual or unexpected answers!
Things to consider:
• What is the purpose of the chatbot?
• How was the interaction with the chatbot like?
• Does it feel like you are talking to a robot or a human? Why do you think so?
• Does it feel like the chatbot has a certain personality?

SLIDE 16 (Lil Miquela):
Lil Miquela isn’t real — at least not like you and me. She is an avatar puppeteered by Brud, an L.A.-based start-up, who specialise in artificial intelligence and robotics.
