Google Urged to Boot 'Anti-LGBTQ and Anti-Immigrant' Right-Winger From AI Ethics Council

Jessica Corbett, staff writer

Google is under fire from employees, tech experts, and members of the LGBTQ community for appointing Kay Coles James, president of the right-wing think tank the Heritage Foundation, to the company's new ethics advisory board for artificial intelligence.

"In selecting James, Google is making clear that its version of 'ethics' values proximity to power over the wellbeing of trans people, other LGBTQ people, and immigrants."

The Heritage foundation has done a great deal of harm to this country. The restrictive policies have held this country back for decades. If google wants to have a meaningful l impact on AI it needs to include members who are not part of the religious right wing of the republican far right No one wants these people involved in decisions that could affect the privacy of all.
