Employees urge Google to drop Pentagon AI project – axios

Thousands of Google employees, including senior engineers, have signed a letter protesting the company’s participation in a Pentagon AI project that could sharpen drone targeting, The New York Times reports.

The letter, sent to CEO Sundar Pichai, says Google “should not be in the business of war” and should pull out of the program, Project Maven, which uses artificial intelligence to improve visual recognition.
