The Revised Laws of AI/Robotics

New rules for future life.

Law 1: A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

Law 2: A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

Law 3: A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

New Law 1: Digital technologies ought to “complement professionals, not replace them.”

New Law 2: A.I. and robotic systems “should not counterfeit humanity.”

New Law 3: A.I. should be prevented from intensifying “zero-sum arms races.”

New Law 4: Robotic and A.I. systems need to be forced to “indicate the identity of their creators(s), controller(s), and owners(s).”
