Stupid Robot

Stupid Robot looks at everything but understands nothing. Can you help? Teach it as much as you can about the image. As it learns, it’ll want to know longer and longer words!

Stupid Robot is a quick and easy browser game that asks players to describe an image they are shown with particular lengths of words.  The more word slots they fill, the smarter the robot gets.

Stupid Robot shows players images from libraries’ digital collections, and simply by playing players contribute data to these libraries and make the images they “tag” more accessible to the world.
