Crystal Ball

The second entry of my mini project series. With AI completion engine assistance, I created this divination game. I am amazed how fast a small project can come together using this technology.

That said I noticed a caveat this time around. When I prompted the engine to "Create an array of sixteen interesting yes, no, and maybe responses" the engine returned the verbatim list of responses for an official Magic 8-Ball.

I suspect that list occurs frequently in their training data, so it may be more likely to complete that exact list. Unfortunately, it seems you need to stay on your toes to prevent accidental copyright infringement using a completion engine.

That said, ask your yes or no question of the ball and click it to get your answer.
