  3. Agenda • What are Cognitive Nanorobots? • Geoethics of Cognitive Nanorobots • Cognition: Perception and Memory • Models of Ethics • Killer Apps of Cognitive Nanorobots • Ethics of Cognitive Nanorobots

  4. 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 Images: corporeality.net, fineartamerica.com 1Freitas, R Jr. Nanomedicine, Volume IIA: Biocompatibility. 15.3.6.5 Biocompatibility with Neural Cells. http://www.nanomedicine.com/NMIIA/15.3.6.5.htm

  5. 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)

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. 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

  9. 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

  10. 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

  11. 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

  12. 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

  13. 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
