Help Debugging Human-Computer Cooperation Quiz Bowl Webapp

Post by ezubaric » Sun Jan 28, 2018 5:06 pm

We're working on creating an interface that communicates how computers try to answer quiz bowl questions. We have a beta version here:

Would love to get feedback on how to make it more fun or more informative. We'll do a more formal "launch" (with prizes and the like) in a little bit.

Some quick thoughts:

- You can click outside the modal (not actually click on the Accept button) to dismiss it. This might be intentional.
- A link (visible while playing) to the initial info on the modal / QANTA's website / the forums might be helpful.
- Love the live highlights, text snippets, and rankings of likely answerlines. Great way to present how QANTA works.
- If you find it worthwhile, you could make the various ranked answerlines clickable so that you can shift what sources are being shown.
- A submit button could be added after typing out an answerline as an addition to actually hitting "Enter."

Really cool stuff! QANTA is amazing, as always.

Getting a question early that the bot isn't even close to getting right feels good every time :lol:
