The Proper Governance Default for AI

The Problem with the Precautionary Principle as the Policy Default for AI

The “Proactionary Principle” is the Better Default for AI Policy

  1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
  2. A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.
