The Challenge of the TV game La Ghigliottina to NLP


In this paper, we describe a Telegram bot, Mago della Ghigliottina (Ghigliottina Wizard), able to solve La Ghigliottina game (The Guillotine), the final game of the Italian TV quiz show L′Eredità. Our system relies on linguistic resources and artificial intelligence and achieves better results than human players (and competitors of L′Eredità too). In addition to solving a game, Mago della Ghigliottina can also generate new game instances and challenge the users to match the solution.
