Yes, Yui is an AI that is not bound to a game, thus she cannot be considered as an NPC, which is something that exists solely in games as part of the game itself.

"Play" just means she is in the game. Like a GM is not meant to "play" the game ( well yes in SAO the GM plays it :P ) and is still a "Player"
I'm starting to get the feeling that both you and n120cky are only considering Yui's role in the Aincrad portion of SAO, where she was supposed to be serving as a highly specialized NPC.

Once you move on from Aincrad and consider the SAO series as a whole, Yui cannot be considered to be an NPC.
