The recently announced Darpa BAA (Broad Agency Announcement) for Cognitive
Information Processing Technology calls for self-aware programs having
cognitive capabilities. If Cycorp submits a proposal and subsequently
receives an award, I believe that we would not comply with your request.
However, I will design (and sell to Cycorp architects) a causal goal
system incorporating friendliness features, which in my opinion directly
address your concern.
