What are cognitive nanorobots

What are Cognitive Nanorobots?

  • Analog to Medical Nanorobots

  • Cognition is just another…

    • Biological function

    • ‘Pathology’ to ameliorate

  • Biocompatibility of medical nanorobots with neural cells1

    • Mechanical

    • Physiological

    • Immunological

    • Cytological

    • Biochemical

Geoethics of cognitive nanorobots

Geoethics of Cognitive Nanorobots

  • Level I Geoethical Concerns

    • Manufacturing and disposal

    • Neural prosthesis

    • Functionality

    • Accessibility (digital divide)

    • Security and mind viruses

    • Authentication

  • Level II Geoethical Concerns

    • Transformation, editing of human cognitive processes

    • Edits could include environmental axiology (re-valorization)


Cognition perception and memory

Cognition: Perception and Memory

  • Henri Bergson (1859-1941)

    • Mathematician

    • Quantum mechanics predictor

    • Science and psychology scholar

  • Doubling (quantitative and qualitative (overlapping))

    • Time, intensity, state, memory

    • Self, consciousness

  • Time: clock time and the inner experience of time (duration)

  • Free will over determinism

    • Spontaneity


Perception and memory

Perception and Memory

  • Topic: mind/body dualism

  • Perception and memory are an interactive process of the body and mind

  • Time and movement

  • Privilege time as space, how/when (not where) memory is stored

  • Exercise: memory retrieval


Models of ethics

Models of Ethics

  • Act-based (right act with right motive)

    • Categorical Imperative (always right/wrong) (Kant)

    • Utilitarianism (outcome maximization) and Consequentialism (end justifies means) (Bentham, Mill)

  • Agent-based

    • Virtue ethics: role of character (Aristotle, Aquinas)

    • Dispositionism: individual traits predict behavior

  • Situation, context, and ecosystem-based (1968)

    • Situationism: social context produces behavior

    • Ethics of Care (Gilligan): morality arises from interaction


Process philosopher ethics

Process Philosopher Ethics

  • Bergson

    • Direct contact with the real, true duration

  • Heidegger

    • A conscious authentic life

    • Dwell meaningfully as human implacement, being ‘in’ place, as an extension of identity

  • Foucault

    • Power: omnipresent micropower relations, biopower and self-disciplinary power

  • Deleuze

    • Thinking and life, plane of immanence

    • Non-fascist life, desiring-production


Connecting perception to ethics machine ethics interfaces

Connecting Perception to Ethics: Machine Ethics Interfaces

  • Possibility of ‘objective’ reality as an input?

  • Many-tiered existing biases

    • Biology

    • Society/culture

    • Individual/group

  • Ethics of Reality

  • UX issues


Killer apps of cognitive nanorobotics

Killer Apps of Cognitive Nanorobotics

  • Bias reduction

  • Memory management

  • Value system elicitation and optimization

  • Perceptual enhancement

    • Different ‘objective’ realities

    • See time, see movement in time and space

    • Notice subjective experience

  • Desire elicitation and modification


Individual group ethics

Individual / Group Ethics

  • Trend of self-awareness, disclosure, destigmatization, taboo removal

  • Group ethics models

    • Old: okay unless harms others, ‘do unto others’

    • New: Negotiation per disclosure, automated mediation through anonymous disclosure

Medicine (genomics), behavior (QS), personal/professional life blending, sexual orientation, gender identification

Neurodiversity:

mental health, mental performance

Desires

Time now


Geoethics of cognitive nanorobots1

Geoethics of Cognitive Nanorobots

  • Overt consideration of machine ethics modules

  • Subjective experience enhancement

  • Ethics/values/desires elicitation and optimization

  • Progression and transformation in ethics paradigms
