AI ethics is a hot topic, particularly at Google, where thousands of engineers have protested
Google’s work in military applications. The company recently released principles that will guide its work in AI.
The principles are, on one level, certainly a work of internal and external PR given the recent dust-up. But it’s also hard to walk back from such a public statement: these principles will likely have some teeth at least for a while. The biggest potential upside of this publication would be if it exerted public pressure on other large technology companies to do the same.
