Description (in English): 

Bot or Not, a 2019 Mozilla Creative Awardee, is an online game that engages people in thinking critically about artificial agents that pretend to be human. Potentially matched to either a bot or a person, players are forced to question not only the human-ness of their opponent, but also themselves as they engage in a two-way guessing game. Today, more and more sophisticated bots are proliferating online and off, and it's getting harder to tell who's human. While this technology can be useful, it can also be used dishonestly: either through scam bots on Tinder and Instagram, or corporate bots that steal your data. There is a ton to learn about bots - particularly how to identify them - which you can explore by visiting the work.
