Aghast In the Machine

For those who don't know the Turing test is a test of a computer/machine's ability to exhibit intelligent behavior equivalent to, or indistinguishable from, that of a human. My problem with a test like this, however seemingly useful, is that it's little more than a mirror of the primate brain and, looking around at what we've done to our precious Earth, it's clear we need something FAR less primitive to help manage our affairs. Why build better sneakers, after all, when we're clearly in need of warp drives?

Still, a Turing-like test would come in handy to help determine if someone is unsuitable for political office. It wouldn't take long for one of these machines to determine that any one of several prominent Republican senators (Ted Cruz) should be working the line at Denny's rather than deciding our future in space.
