Current advances in research, development and application of artificial intelligence (AI) systems have yielded a far-reaching discourse on AI ethics. In consequence, a number of ethics guidelines have been released in recent years. These guidelines comprise normative principles and recommendations aimed to harness the “disruptive” potentials of new AI technologies. Designed as a semi-systematic evaluation, this paper analyzes and compares 22 guidelines, highlighting overlaps but also omissions… 
AI Ethics as Applied Ethics
The need to design and develop artificial intelligence (AI) in a sustainable manner has motivated researchers, institutions, and organizations to formulate suggestions for AI ethics. Although these
A criticism of AI ethics guidelines
This paper investigates the current wave of Artificial Intelligence Ethics GUidelines (AIGUs). The goal is not to provide a broad survey of the details of such efforts; instead, the reasons for the
Ethics as a service: a pragmatic operationalisation of AI Ethics
TLDR
Why principles and technical translational tools are still needed even if they are limited, and how these limitations can be potentially overcome by providing theoretical grounding of a concept that has been termed ‘Ethics as a Service’ are explored.
Ethics as a Service: A Pragmatic Operationalisation of AI Ethics
TLDR
Why principles and technical translational tools are still needed even if they are limited, and how these limitations can be potentially overcome by providing theoretical grounding of a concept that has been termed ‘Ethics as a Service’ are explored.
The global landscape of AI ethics guidelines
TLDR
A detailed analysis of 84 AI ethics reports around the world finds a convergence around core principles but substantial divergence on practical implementation, highlighting the importance of integrating guideline-development efforts with substantive ethical analysis and adequate implementation strategies.
Embedded ethics: a proposal for integrating ethics into the development of medical AI
TLDR
It is proposed that an ‘embedded ethics’ approach, in which ethicists and developers together address ethical issues via an iterative and continuous process from the outset of development, could be an effective means of integrating robust ethical considerations into the practical development of medical AI.
Ethical Guidelines and Principles in the Context of Artificial Intelligence
TLDR
A body of knowledge in the field of AI ethics is presented, with the purpose of supporting developers and Product Owners in identifying the guidelines and ethical principles in the literature so that they can be used during the software development process.
Principles Alone Cannot Guarantee Ethical AI
TLDR
Brent Mittelstadt highlights important differences between medical practice and AI development that suggest a principled approach to AI development may not work in the case of AI.
Lessons learned from AI ethics principles for future actions
As the use of artificial intelligence (AI) systems became significantly more prevalent in recent years, the concerns on how these systems collect, use and process big data also increased. To address
The Quest for Actionable AI Ethics
In the face of the fact that AI ethics guidelines currently, on the whole, seem to have no significant impact on AI practices, the quest of AI ethics to ensure trustworthy AI is in danger of becoming

Artificial Intelligence: the global landscape of ethics guidelines
TLDR
A global convergence emerging around five ethical principles (transparency, justice and fairness, non-maleficence, responsibility and privacy), with substantive divergence in relation to how these principles are interpreted; why they are deemed important; what issue, domain or actors they pertain to; and how they should be implemented.
Principles Alone Cannot Guarantee Ethical AI
TLDR
Brent Mittelstadt highlights important differences between medical practice and AI development that suggest a principled approach to AI development may not work in the case of AI.
Towards a Code of Ethics for Artificial Intelligence
  • P. Boddington
  • Computer Science
    Artificial Intelligence: Foundations, Theory, and Algorithms
  • 2017
TLDR
The challenges that arise in developing codes of ethics for artificial intelligence (AI) are discussed, including the usual disputes about how long it will be before it is with us, as well as disputes about whether the authors should welcome its arrival, and if so, why.
Building Ethics into Artificial Intelligence
TLDR
This paper complements existing surveys on the psychological, social and legal discussions of the topic, with an analysis of recent advances in technical solutions for AI governance, and proposes a taxonomy which divides the field into four areas: 1) exploring ethical dilemmas; 2) individual ethical decision frameworks; 3) collective ethical decision framework; 4) ethics in human-AI interactions.
The Key Concepts of Ethics of Artificial Intelligence
TLDR
It is suggested that the focus on finding keywords is the first step in guiding and providing direction for future research in the AI ethics field.
From What to How. An Overview of AI Ethics Tools, Methods and Research to Translate Principles into Practices
TLDR
The intention in presenting this research is to contribute to closing the gap between principles and practices by constructing a typology that may help practically-minded developers apply ethics at each stage of the pipeline, and to signal to researchers where further work is needed.
Ethical Considerations in Artificial Intelligence Courses
TLDR
Practical case studies and links to resources for use by AI educators on how to integrate AI ethics into a general artificial intelligence course and how to teach a stand-alone artificial intelligence ethics course are provided.
On Quantifying and Understanding the Role of Ethics in AI Research: A Historical Account of Flagship Conferences and Journals
TLDR
This work analyses the use and the occurrence of ethics-related research in leading AI, machine learning and robotics venues, and performs long term, historical corpus-based analyses on a large number of flagship conferences and journals.
AI4People—An Ethical Framework for a Good AI Society: Opportunities, Risks, Principles, and Recommendations
TLDR
The core opportunities and risks of AI for society are introduced; a synthesis of five ethical principles that should undergird its development and adoption are presented; and 20 concrete recommendations are offered to serve as a firm foundation for the establishment of a Good AI Society.
