Iconary showcases the world’s first AI system capable of playing a Pictionary-style drawing and guessing game together with a human partner. In Iconary, you team up with the AllenAI artificial intelligence to either draw or guess a set of unique phrases. There are a limited set of icons available to compose your drawing – can you communicate successfully with AllenAI to win the game?
AllenAI combines advanced computer vision, language understanding, and common sense reasoning to make guesses based on your drawings and to produce its own complex scenes for you to try to guess. Iconary is the one of the first times an AI system is paired in a collaborative game with a human player instead of antagonistically working against them. AllenAI is capable of both understanding and producing a nearly infinite combination of real-world scenarios represented in the phrases in Iconary, a compelling example of the potential of common sense for AI and the power of human-AI collaboration.
