Google‘s Secret Meeting With Pentagon Causes Staff To Revolt – The 10 Billion Dollar Reason Why

Welcome to: The Sci-Tech Sentinel Google Founder Met Secretly With Pentagon To Create ‘Jedi AI Cloud’ -Staffers Revolt

Hosted by Justus Knight

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Google is withdrawing from a big deal with the United States armed forces. The company’s new ethical guidelines for artificial intelligence (AI) do not match the project, writes parent company Alphabet.

With the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) deal, 10 billion dollars is involved. The Pentagon is looking for a company that creates and manages clouds to store huge amounts of data. The project will run for up to ten years.

Kill

In May, unrest arose among employees due to project Maven, in which video images made by drones were analyzed. The data that this yields is used to determine, eg, who should be killed during missions. Google stops according to US media at the end of next year with this project.

… Tech giants Amazon and Microsoft are still in the running for the tender of JEDI.
