Google’s old “don’t be evil” slogan has been under fire for years, and it appears that the tech titan is once again facing accusations of questionable behavior.
The New York Times reports that Timnit Gebru, a Black woman who is a co-leader of Google’s ethical A.I. team, has left the company under troubling circumstances. Gebru asserted in a Wednesday night tweet that she was fired because of an email regarding hiring practices and bias in Google’s artificial intelligence technology. Platformer has published the email here.
