Development of AI Ethics and Norms: Future Paths, Issues, and Challenges

From fielded applications of artificial narrow intelligence to the looming prospect of future superintelligence, human dependency on and collaboration with machines are increasingly fraught with questions over ethics and norms. With artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) already in use in the civilian and military spheres today, present experiences are progressively shaping the norms that will come to define the human-machine collaboration of the future. Building on these fundamentals, governments and militaries are also seeking guidance on AI/ML ethics. Not only is this an indispensable question of operational safety, but it is also an important signal to programmers and engineers whose criticism of “unethical” or questionable military action may short-circuit militaries’ access to cutting-edge dual-use technologies. As militaries themselves seek to systematise their usage of AI/ML, this study will analyse norms and principles for ethics and safety.
