Google Employees Resign in Protest Against Pentagon Contract →
Kate Conger at Gizmodo:
It’s been nearly three months since many Google employees—and the public—learned about the company’s decision to provide artificial intelligence to a controversial military pilot program known as Project Maven, which aims to speed up analysis of drone footage by automatically classifying images of objects and people. Now, about a dozen Google employees are resigning in protest over the company’s continued involvement in Maven.
Google has definitely been a bit tone-deaf the last couple of weeks on how people will view their AI efforts.
