Silicons and harm

Unread postby nullance » Wed Nov 28, 2018 11:26 pm #457663

Just wanted to see other peoples thoughts, But when it comes to the Ai and borgs with Asimov, would self-harm fall under harm so falling under law 1 A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm or no?

The current policy is it doesn’t matter. I believe it should stay this way considering there really isn’t any way for a silicon to stop self harm. Prisoner in perma punching themself if you won’t let them go? Nothing you would be able to do but open the door for them. It would be pretty cancerous for everyone involved with silicons since any law 2 order means nothing when you can just get the AI to stop by punching yourself.

Also, the AI would be required to bolt mining down at shift start, as Lavaland is quite harmful.

Consensual/Self harm should be ignored by silicons per silly policy

Self-harm is not considered a violation of Law 1.

Consensual surgery is not a violation either, non-consensual however is.

Pain or "mental anguish" is also not considered a violation.

No and if even if there was a problem, just turn off the borg and no more problem.
