I'll just make the same point I always make when the discussion takes this turn: which ethics? Whose ethics? I mean, nobody is beating a path to my ethics course of a few years ago, but if I showed anything in that work I think, I showed that there's no one system of ethics to which we can appeal. And this becomes especially problematic when we start talking about enshrining a legalistic and (dare I say) corporatist interpretation of ethics for all time in the constitution of these AI systems. As always, I'm far more worried about the ethics of the human implementers than I am about what the machine might do.
