Google not helping US military with AI but will end up help China’s military AI

Google is choosing to not help the US military with AI but is indirectly helping the Chinese military.

Former deputy secretary of defense Bob Work points out
* Google opened up an AI center in China
* China will be able to steal anything that is developed in the Google AI Center in Beijing
* US military Project Maven could save lives by preventing an attack on the US or its allies

Silicon Valley tech companies are mostly not interested in the time, hassle and low margins of US military contracts.

Google opened an AI center at the end of 2017 in China. They hired several hundred AI developers.

Over 3,000 of Google’s 70,000 employees signed a letter saying “Google should not be in the business of war” and should promise that “neither Google nor its contractors will ever build warfare technology.” The petitioners successfully urged Google to withdraw from Project Maven. Project Maven uses AI to search pictures and video. Google employees are still selling products to US Special Operations.
