Upload ethics

I have been interviewed by David Orban about the ethics of whole brain emulation, as a preparation for the Singularity Summit.

Of course, this is just a very brief interview about a subject that deserves a much, much longer talk - handling moral uncertainty about the status of software, the ethics of finding uploading volunteers, the vulnerability of uploads, the social impact, the ethics of splitting, not to mention brain editing. A paper from some of us FHI people should show up eventually, we have been brainstorming for a while.

I look forward to do more interviews with David. This one was fun!
