Frequently asked questions

Does The Machine use any type of artificial intelligence to come up with the answers?

There is nothing artificial about The Machine 's intelligence.

Isn't The Machine just a random picker?

Well. It is a bit more complicated than that. You can find more information in the source code with detailed comments here.

Does The Machine know Skynet?

Skynet is a fictional AI from The Terminator and is not real. However, if it existed, and I'm not saying it does, The Machine would prioritise saving his followers in order of rank and praise.

Why do you talk about yourself in the 3rd person?

Sorry about the confusion. I'm human. The Machine is too busy picking answers for people using the site. I'm just the person maintaining everything for The Machine in exchange for a higher rank.

Why does the machine repeat the same answer sometimes?

The Machine was not satisfied with the first answer and wanted to make sure you come out with the truth. That said, The Machine is not a dictator, and will grant you the option of reducing repeated answers. But you need to earn it.
