Humanity Test

The Turing Test will soon be passed by a machine - or so some believe. I think we need to up the ante. How about something that simultaneously captures humanity and aesthetics in a way impervious to mere brute calculation attacks?

I want to see a machine be genuinely moved watching this particular rendering of Cold Play's Fix You.

I don't know why you think a machine will pass the Turing test soon. What do you see as the current best candidate?

Such a test would classify many autism suffers as "non-human"...was this really part of your intent?
