Inspired by IBM Watson’s Jeopardy appearance, Uncommon Union Labs developed its own artificially intelligent trivia game. “News Flash” was a fast-paced, multiple choice game in which questions were dynamically generated from actual headlines and articles.
Users competed against the computer or each other for points that were to be redeemable as prizes / special offers. A realtime leader board tracked winners in various categories including politics, business, the world, science and technology, health, etc.
AUTOMATED CONTENT DISCOVERY
The New Flash game architecture did not require the creation of original content or regular content management. Our AI made use of widely-available RSS feeds in a manner more compelling than conventional news aggregation. The game facilitated content discovery through community-based game play.
