What Exactly is Symbiotic Autonomous Systems?

The Symbiotic Autonomous Systems (SAS) initiative fosters studies and applications focused on the convergence of human augmentation with the increasing intelligence and awareness of artifacts, leading towards a symbiosis of humans and machines. This will have significant implications for human society as a whole, affecting culture and the economy and prompting new questions about our place on Earth.

In the context of this article a general principle is defined simply as a rule, or guide to action, which embodies an underlying ethical principle."
