[X-Prize for a robot that delivers a TED talk worthy of a standing ovation]

What if, as with partisan portions of the 'State of the Union', half the 
audience gives a standing ovation, and the other half resolutely sits?

Historically, political strongmen have won standing ovations without 
much regard to the wit or intelligence of their speeches. The audience 
simply Knows What's Good For Them.

So, can the robot be a military model wielding a machine gun?

If so, this prize could be awarded as soon as a venue and audience can 
be gathered!
