  4. Three laws of human design: based on Issac Asimov’s Three

    Laws of Robots en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Laws_of_Robotics
  5. An interface may not injure a human being or, through

    inaction, allow a human being to come to harm – harm is emotional. RULE 1
  6. An interface must obey orders given to it by human

 except where such orders would conflict with the first law –
