Sounds reasonable Adam. Perhaps you could join the covid-19 modeling groups, thereby raising their mean IQ substantially and improving forecasts.

Walter <-> Watson Levenshtein distance = 4.
Roberson <-> Robot Levenshtein distance = 4.
nnz(mod(+'Walter',4)) = 4
sum('Roberson') = 842 (note 8/2 = 4)
numel('Roberson') = 8 = 4+4
MATLAB Central user number: 434782 (note 7-3 = 4 and 8/2 = 4)
Active since 2011 (note 2019-2011 = 8 = 4+4)

Yes, Walter is a real person. In fact at the Annual Meetings in June of this year, he received a highly prestigious MATLABBY Award. There was also another ceremony to celebrate his "Star" in the "Mathworks Walk of Fame". I'm including photos from the event below.
By the way, I'm also attaching the Photoshop files in case you'd like to make your own.

And there is a new award for people who attain 100,000 reputation points: The Roberson Cup.

There are small windows of silence from WR that follow a circadian cycle suggesting periods of sleep which would be evidence that WR is human. But this could easily be built in to the AI robot as well.
WR, are you up for a Turing test?

I'm voting for a daily reboot instead of a sleep cycle as well ;)

Of course it helps that he's on MATLAB's advisory board and gets some special things like the "Mind Reading Toolbox" and the "Crystal Ball Toolbox" that even we (other MVPs) don't have access to.

Mathworks community is outstanding plateform of science and all are performing like a team but some are Leaders like Mr. Walter Roberson. He has dedicated his most of the time to serve and help the research of the whole world.
Winning teams always have talented leaders or captans. All community members of Mathworks are just like stars and have equal contributions in promoting knwoledge and humanity all around the Globe.
Salute to all of them.

Ha Ha Ha, a good question! I would say a robot, but I bet Walter Roberson would say otherwise.

Well, I've seen signs that would be surprising in an AI robot - so my guess is actual human.
