[ExI] Image Recognition Appreciation Day

I would humbly like to suggest that June 23 (Alan Turing's birthday by the way) be turned into a international holiday called "Image Recognition Appreciation Day". On this day we would all reflect on the intelligence required to recognize images. It is important that this be done soon because although computers are not very good at this task right now that will certainly change in the next few years. On the day computers become good at it the laws of physics in the universe will change and intelligence will no longer be required for image recognition.

So if we ever intend to salute the brainpower required for this skill it is imperative we do it now while we can.
