Ethics and human augmentation

Code of Ethics on Human Augmentation: the three ‘Laws’

Why? To protect us, future consumers and adopters, and society from machines of malice — whether eventually by AI superintelligence, or right now by corrupt human intelligence.

What nonsense.
I need to tell anyone that I am looking at them?
No way!!!
Every individual needs to accept that every thing they do can be observed by anyone!

Technology actually makes that real.

Do not expect that any actions will go unnoticed.

This means we have to get away from the sorts of legal systems we have, that are overly specific as to what one may and may not do, and go to a system where people can see what actually happened, see what narratives the individuals involved have, and make decisions about reasonableness in cases of dispute.

It wont be too long before we all have near perfect recall. Get used to the idea. Not just elites.
Distributed trust networks, with digital memory are likely to be the core of the replacement for markets and money in human interaction.

No way will I accept crippling such things through a need to actively inform everyone I look at that I have looked at them..

Other than that point 1, most of the rest of it seems to make some sort of sense,and like others have said – overly prescriptive.

We have got to start moving away from rule based systems, to values based systems, with general guidelines.
