A moral machine
A.s.a. learns to predict and optimize/improve lifespan and diskcopy/reproduction at the top of the case memory hierarchy, Pains (or NOT(pain)s), battery charge, and component malfunctionings (things like motor stalls and subsystem failures) are seen/measured as inputs to the bottom of the memory hierarchy. Pattern size/length and frequency of occurrence are seen as values on any and all levels of the memory hierarchy. For A.s.a., improvement, as measured by increases in these values, constitutes its moral calculus. We are not intending A.s.a. to be a servant.
