Guide to Emoji AI 🧠

The Emoji AI has learned many different ways to communicate to resemble the intended words or syllables. The AI picked up on literal depictions directly within the emoji image so 🍴 is a fork or a knife. But, other emojis are ambiguous and now a 🥟 could be a dumpling, pierogi, empanada or gyōza! The AI even learned a bit of slang so a 🍔 may be a burger or slider.

Also, symbolism is common throughout literature and the Emoji AI has a fondness for Lady Justice (see right) and learned to associate ⚖ with weighing, justice, and law. Additionally, the AI learned to count and make references so 󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🕑📅 could be February or Tuesday. Lastly, some elements of the English language the AI couldn’t figure out so conjunctions are ➕s and question words are ❓s and other common words are ➗s. Overall, with a vocabulary in the thousands the Emoji AI is nearly on par with a teenager.
