As part of its quirky annual Black Friday tradition, this year the creators of the Cards Against Humanity (CAH) game had their writers compete against an Artificial Intelligence (AI) in a viral stunt to see who would make up the most popular cards.
Not content to pit man against machine for mere bragging rights, CAH management upped the stakes further by stating that if the human writers won, they would each get a US$5,000 (S$6,800) holiday bonus. If the AI won, the human writers would be fired.
CAH added that whoever sold the most card packs over the 16-hour Black Friday contest period would be declared the winner. Each pack sold would contain the 30 most popular cards written by either the human team or the AI.
