It was not created by a Jew so it probably won't get the Jewish names you think of.  You need to try non Jewish people.

It's not that impressive. It has a big database filled with various properties. Each time, it asks about the remaining property that will (on average) make the remaining pool the smallest. It's essentially cheating at 20 questions (ie the game).
