I was doing some research on AI and came accross one of the most bizarre and fascinating things I've seen in a long time.

Take the test, it's for a good cause.  What do you think about the use of autosuggest here? What do you think about the use of electrodes!?!?!?

The autosuggest was bugging me. I think it drives people's answers and doesn't really capture what they first thought of the image. Hah, and those electrodes are interesting!

 

Thanks for sharing Marjorie!

Yeah the autosuggest heavily influenced my answer.  Just because of the work I've been doing lately, I'm really aware of variations in implementation of this feature.  It seems like it was a decision they made to try to reproduce the original experiment conditions, BUT...? 

Has anyone done much autosuggest with a closed, very long list?  How do you distinguish between closed and open lists?  Is the user helped by knowing which it is?
