OutRandom: Addressing an Underrated Skill


Abstract

This paper describes the concept, design and results of a computer game that addresses human's ability to produce random binary sequences. The game was realized in the form of an interactive installation and featured at several events. Because of its inherent motivational characteristics, it is well suited for scientific research on the production and assessment of randomness by humans.
