Pele vs. Pierre Simon Laplace (2); Alan Turing advances

Best comment yesterday came from Manuel:

Turing did not know how to train a machine to pass the Turing test. I’m sure Oprah knows how train a person to pass the Oprah test.

But there is no Oprah test. So Turing will advance.

Maybe next time we do this competition we can include Alison Bechdel.

And today we have an unseeded GOAT vs. the second-seeded mathematician. I’m pretty sure that neither would give a seminar half as fun as Oprah or Turing, but one of the two must advance to the third round. Who should it be?

Again, here’s the bracket and here are the rules.
