This is a list – not at all comprehensive – that links to published works that are terrific resources and sometimes hard to find:

Abstract. This paper claims that the “species dominance” issue will dominate our
global politics later this century. Humanity will be bitterly divided over the
question whether to build godlike, massively intelligent machines, called
“artilects” (artificial intellects) which with 21st century technologies will have
mental capacities trillions of trillions of times above the human level. Humanity
will split into 3 major camps, the “Cosmists” (in favor of building artilects), the
“Terrans” (opposed to building artilects), and the “Cyborgs” (who want to become
artilects themselves by adding components to their own human brains). A major
“artilect war” between the Cosmists and the Terrans, late in the 21st century will
kill not millions but billions of people.
