Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This thesis talks about the problem of acquiring Common Sense Associations. Shared facts we have about the world. For example, we know that “CAT is related to FUR” and “HOUSE is related to ROOM”. The thesis will introduce a prototype called MindMatch. This prototype is a simple multiplayer game that collects associations. Games like this often goes under the name of games with a purpose, games which are meant to be fun to play and have the side-effect of gathering valuable data. MindMatch was developed for two languages (Swedish and English) and was tested on almost 200 people. About 20,000 associations were collected and MindMatch demonstrates a cheap and effective way to collect associations.
