What are useful for a phd?

NB: I hope my question is not entirely irrevelant to
this mailing list. But if anyone thinks so, I appologize.

I am about to start my phd and I am in the process of
thinking what disciplines/sub-disciplines would be useful
for FAI (Friendly AI)? And what could be the research
direction? While not planning to base my entire phd on researching on
FAI, I do hope that part of it will be relevant and thus
useful to FAI development.

Here are a few areas just off the top of my head.
I just need some help for the brainstorming. ^_^

Cognitive Science
Deontic logic?
Kernel methods?
Commonsense reasoning?
Hybrid intelligent ssytems?
Non-monotonic reasoning?
Anything else?
