You didn't provide a link to the course or video, so I'm not sure what specific conditions should be observed. The computer could guess randomly or strategically, for example.

Here's a sample program which combines a random first guess with a strategic followup:

import random

low = 1
high = 100
answer = ''
tries = 0

print("Pick a number from {} to {} and I will try to guess it.".format(low, high))
input("Hit return when ready: ")

guess = random.randint(low,high)

while answer != "yes":
    answer = input("Is it {}? ".format(guess))
    if answer == "higher":
        low = guess + 1   
        guess = int((high - low) / 2 + low)
        tries += 1
    elif answer == "lower":
        high = guess - 1
        guess = int((high - low) / 2 + low)
        tries += 1
    elif answer == "yes":
        if (tries):
            print ("Yay!  I got it in {} tries!".format(tries + 1))
            print ("Holy Cow!  I read your mind!")
        print ('Please answer with "higher", "lower", or "yes".')
