‘Not in the business of war’: Google employees urge company to abandon Pentagon AI project — RT US News

Good point. What about preventive policing and NSA projects?

Are Google employees for preventive policing and NSA, taking it a step at a time or don’t care?

Maybe without privacy and liberty crushing projects such as  preventive policing and NSA projects their isn’t much else for them to do.

Thousands of Google employees have signed an open letter urging the tech giant not to work on a US government surveillance engine which could use artificial intelligence to improve the targeting of drone strikes.

“We believe that Google should not be in the business of war. Therefore we ask that Project Maven be cancelled and that Google draft, publicize, and enforce a clear policy stating that neither Google nor its contractors will ever build warfare technology,” reads the letter which was published by the New York Times on Tuesday.

It’s great that Google employees are protesting their company’s Pentagon AI drone research, but that’s hardly the only work Google does for militaries and law enforcement.

What about Google’s work with predictive policing contractors? What about the NSA?
