Right now during our Beta play-chip phase we have a mix of AI players and real players on the site. Depending on what timezone you're in, there will be more or fewer humans online. You can recognize the AI players as all their names are puns about computers, and if you click on their name on the seat you will see a picture of Bender from Futurama on their profile, and a note in their bio indicating they're an AI trainer.
