What academic discipline would things like Ethics of artificial intelligence, internet privacy, the implications and possibly negative societal consequences of having free, uncontrolled information via the internet fall under?

I've been reading about the history of the internet, books on psychology and internet addiction and how people are getting fucked up in the head from too much twitter and 4chinz. It's super fascinating, especially with everyone shitting their pants about "fake news", but i have no direction with how to formally study this shit.

Public Policy? Grad school for philosophy? Law? how do i study tech ethics in school

I'd guess AI ethics falls under philosophy. I mean, who would you be as an ethicist if you ain't studied history of ethics right?

The Ethics of Emerging Technologies is a highly specialized field within philosophy (and often abuts other, often unrelated disciplines) so you would have to go to a school that actually has a program in the matter if you really want to study that. From my perspective, the leader in this field is Nick Bostrom, who runs the Future of Humanity Institute at Oxford.
