If you’re like me, the only thing you think about when you hear the hubbub around ChatGPT, AI, and whether homework means anything anymore is Blade Runner.
In the visionary 1982 film, far in the distant future of 2019, androids (called “replicants”) have become so sophisticated that sometimes you can't tell whether they’re human or machine.
Luckily, there’s a handy test that blade runners, like Rick Deckard, can use to figure out if someone is a replicant — and if they turn out to be a replicant running amok, “retire” them ... if you catch my drift.
The test involves things like taking blood pressure and checking heart rate, but also answering questions about insects and children. And it’s pretty damn important to be able to pass it if you think you’re not a replicant.
But what was the test called?
