"Toast" is a word guessing game. The goal is to guess the
target word the program randomly picks from the chosen word
collection. By asking a series of “Is the word closer to WordA or
WordB?” questions, the player will navigate through a vector space
where words are mapped into vector coordinates based on their
similarity to each other within the larger context. The program
calculates the distance between the target word and the guessing
words, changes the prompt to display the word of smaller of the two
distances, and plots the correct guessing trail on the canvas.
The words were curated by us, processed with spaCy word2vec, scaled and plotted with Sci-kitLearn t-SNE, and are brought to your browser with pixi.js. Enjoy!
