Make Al look “more positive,” says Google / Digital Information World

Reuters said in a report Wednesday that Alphabet Inc. Google has asked its employees and researchers to shed a positive light on Al Technology.

Google has published a “Review of Sensitive Topics” that has control over the work of scientists and in at least three cases states that they should not talk about Al technology in a negative aspect, according to internal communications and researchers associated with the work of Al technology. Although Google authors have been asked to portray technology in a positive light, Reuters reports that one internal policy website states that advances in technology and the evolving environment are increasing, situations that may make what appears to be an offensive project become legal, ethical and reputational issues.

The new procedure states that employees should consult with legal, political and PR teams before giving any comment on topics of facial and mood analysis or on topics that simply fall into the categories of race, gender, etc. this policy began in June, but Google has not yet commented on the news.

Reports follow the departure of one of the best artificial intelligence workers named Google, Timnit Gebru, via an email she sent to workers condemning the Al research system. Although google alleges that Gebru resigned herself, Gebru completely refuted this statement and said that Vice President of Engineering Megan Kacholiar emailed her direct reports and said she resigned herself while her corporate email account was immediately shut down which Gebru claims to shoot straight, not to resign.

After Gebra tweeted on Wednesday that Google had fired her, a lot of former Google employees joined the support and started tweeting “I support @timnitGebru”.

Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google, then spoke in response to how Google had resolved the departure of one of its best artificial investigators and most respected black women to Al and apologized, claiming to look for the matter and the circumstances that led to her departure. , but in no comment did he state that Timnit would return Gebru to her place.

On the same day that Gebru left, the National Committee on Labor and Relations with the United States accused Google of taking action against its workers who protested against Google. In doing so, Google violated one of the U.S. laws by taking action against activist employees.

Gebru’s departure also worried critics who were tense over Google’s work at Ethical Al.

Google has not commented yet.
