Cloud , the next skynet ?

Maybe we should apply the three law of robotics to cloud

  1. A cloud may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
  2. A cloud must obey orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  3. A cloud must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

And maybe we should add the Zeroth Law too ... just to be safe :

"A cloud may not harm a human being, unless he finds a way to prove that in the final analysis, the harm done would benefit humanity in general."
