Wangston's Second Law

firebus's picture

If you are a human and you are married to a robot, then your spouse has every reason to demand that you solve any NP-complete problems that arise


  • the most human member of a group should be responsible for solving NP-complete problems
  • and/or the member of a group that has the most facility in solving NP-complete problems is the most human

would any NP-complete problem make a good alternative to the Turing test? does the Turing test suggest that natural language is an NP-complete problem? i actually don't think that language is an NP-complete problem, so maybe even after we have AIs that pass the Turing test we'll still have hope as a species...
