As Google looks at developing a search engine censored by Beijing, China's online authoritarianism combined with its development as a global hub for artificial intelligence innovation presents an ethical dilemma.
A letter signed by employees reminded Google's leadership that a censored app for China breaches its own code of ethics. Only a few hundred of the 88,000 employees have been given information on the project.
Don’t be evil, says Google. The corporate motto may suggest a desire to be seen as virtuous but that desire will look hollow if reports that the search giant is willing to bow to Chinese censorship demands are true.
