So this was something fairly interesting I came across. For some background info, Google Opinion Rewards is an Android app that gives people Google Play credit to answer surveys. As part of the process, they reserve the right to stop sending surveys if they “believe [the user] is lying” on the survey results. Star Citizen is a crowdfunded video game. The screenshot below illustrates very obviously such a “lying check” survey, where the algorithms have quite obviously failed at understanding the topic. The user, posting in the Star Citizen reddit, announces that Google is interested in Star Citizen because it is asking him about it. A quick scan of his reddit history doesn’t show any interest in any of the other topics.
