The term "Ethics of Artificial Intelligence" refers to the morality of how humans design, construct, use and treat Artificial Intelligence(s) and artificially intelligent beings. It considers both how artificially intelligent beings may be used to harm humans and how they may be used to benefit humans.
In this document you will find curated list of useful (sometimes awesome) resorices on learning the basics of Ethics of Artificial Intelligence in courses, books, papers, blogs (and blog posts), research centres, journals, conferences and much, much more...

- Offensive Realism and the Insecure Structure of the International System - Nick Bostrom has recommended AI development under what he calls the common good principle: “[s]uperintelligence should be developed only for the benefit of all humanity and the service of widely shared ethical ideals.”7 Proposals for precisely which ideals or guidelines should regulate AI production are often linked to their potential use as weaponry.
- Military AI as a Convergent Goal of Self-Improving AI. - Authors show that one of the convergent drives of AI is a militarization drive, arising from AI’s need to wage a war against its potential rivals by either physical or software means, or to increase its bargaining power. This militarization trend increases global catastrophic risk or even existential risk during AI takeoff.
- Artificial agents and the expanding ethical circle - The paper discusses the realizability and the ethical ramifications of Machine Ethics, from a number of different perspectives: the anthropocentric, infocentric, biocentric and ecocentric ones.
- Superintelligence and the Future of Governance: On Prioritizing the Control Problem at the End of History - The author suggests that the only plausible escape from the security/surveillance conundrum is the creation of a “supersingleton” run by a friendly superintelligence, founded upon a “post-singularity social contract.”
