How do we control them not to deliberately misuse cars, software or
It seems that we have some decent ideas for this, but that we need to
improve them for technology that is (1) hard to detect the use of, (2)
gives a significant advantage to the users over the non-users. This is
similar for other technologies like biotechnology (small labs give 1),
or powerful atomically precise manufacturing (could give 2).
We might consider making 1 harder by better monitoring, but 2 is tricky
after the fact: we may need to have better ideas for what capabilities
give real power and handle them more proactively.
