Google disbands AI ethics board following pushback | TheHill

Google announced its new AI ethics board, a body tasked with serving as an ethical check on Google’s AI technology production, last week. 

The board was immediately met with controversy as thousands of Google employees and hundreds of external petitioners took issue with one of the board’s members, who they said had an “anti-trans” and “anti-immigrant” record. 

More than 2,380 Google employees signed onto a petition asking the company to remove Kay Coles James, president of the conservative Heritage Foundation, from the panel.
