Take a generalized gaming AI. Give it the words and
of the English language as potential moves. Set up little
booths in various highly populated places, such as Times

into the machine. Define "failure" as having people
break the machine.
Let the gaming AI try different techniques until it's
successful at this. It might start out with random words,
then focus on words that tend to get donations (such as
"please help") then graduate into full shill speeches, lies,
and promises. If it's set to keep trying new kinds of
it may even start writing and selling novels. Or running
scams. Or selling building designs. Or songs. Any of these
would be, I think, proof of strong AI.
And if elected, I promise... [whatrock, Jan 28 2016]
