I'll post this here, because it's somewhat related. I've asked a few people that two box in Newcomb's problem what they would do in a variation of the problem. Instead of deciding to one box or two box, you are asked to write a program that will one box or two box, and Omega is given access to the source code before filling the boxes. When phrased like this, the few two boxers I asked said they would write the program to one box.

Is anyone else interested in the possibility of Watson/Watson like systems acting as a "juror" on court cases? Does Watson have any known biases?

I would've gone if studying for finals wasn't first on my to-do list.
