The Knowledge Test Game was developed at The German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI).
In addition to having fun playing our game you will be contributing to scientific research. The guesses that you type in the game are stored to be later used to help making the Internet a better place!
Every guess that you enter, is recorded as a possible association to the topic that was presented to you in that game (the topic is the big word that you get in each game). When many people enter the same association, this increases the players' scores in the game and also increases the probability that this association makes sense.
Such games are called Games With A Purpose. Learn more about GWAPs here.
