Toast2word is a collaborative word-guessing game played between human and computer. Through a series of “is the word closer to WORDA or WORDB” questions, the human player navigates the semantic space in search of a secret word that the computer has chosen.
The name of the game is a play on Word2vec, the machine learning model that sits under the hood.
