#### Abstract

In artificial intelligence, an important type of machine learning algorithm involves taking old data and using new information to transform it. With this in mind, the famous Cheryl’s Birthday problem was taken in order to take the information that each agent knows and put it into a data hierarchy, and then using an algorithm to transform this data hierarchy based on the new announcements made throughout the problem. For this, pseudocode in the form a series of conditional statements to find out what dates could be eliminated to find Cheryl’s actual birthday in the problem. With this, a computer can be programmed to solve any problem in the form of Cheryl’s Birthday with any information. This algorithm opens the possibilities of machine learning algorithms that are able to change data sets based on given information.
