Legislation for robotics and AI rights  

At some point Asgardia will need to have it's own laws..this reference may help when that time comes

"The European parliament has urged the drafting of a set of regulations to govern the use and creation of robots and artificial intelligence, including a form of “electronic personhood” to ensure rights and responsibilities for the most capable AI.

In a 17-2 vote, with two abstentions, the parliament’s legal affairs committee passed the report, which outlines one possible framework for regulation."

I think this is a really important question to address, but unfortunately I don't have nearly enough technical background to suggest an answer ;) My initial thought is twofold... 

1. I'm horribly afraid of what we'll call for shorthand a "Terminator" scenario, with AI deciding it can do better without us. I think if this is something Elon Musk is concerned about then it's worth some serious thought. Just the other day he got in a cute little Twitter fight with the Facebook guy about it, which is funny in and of itself.

2. Assuming AI doesn't result in a "Terminator" scenario and everything is peaceful, we absolutely have to legislate AI civil rights. If they are sentient, they deserve the right of self-determination and must be protected like any other citizen.
