Google CEO Meets With Military Over China


Business Insider reports that on Wednesday, Google CEO Sundar Pichai will meet with a top US military official in Washington, DC. The meeting comes after Gen. Dunford's remarks during a Senate hearing earlier in March,. Dunforrd said Google's artificial intelligence work in China "indirectly benefits the Chinese military." Google has said that it's "not working with the Chinese military." It said that its AI activities in China focus on "education, research on natural language understanding and market algorithms." Google has come under pressure by US lawmakers. Last year Google decided not to renew its contract to build AI tools for the Pentagon, known as Project Maven.
