GIVE: Human Gamers vs. AI Systems

Northwestern University and an international team of researchers have created an online game which uses artificial intelligence (AI) to challenge players to solve a virtual treasure hunt. Players who visit the GIVE (Generating Instructions in Virtual Environments) game website until the end of January have the opportunity to play the game and provide feedback on how well the system provided instructions. According to Justine Cassell, director of Northwestern University's Center for Technology and Social Behavior, the feedback will be used to help improve NLG (natural language generation) system design.

The GIVE game is part of a growing trend in AI research to allow Internet users to participate in AI system assessment.
