Google has promised not to build weapons, but the contract with the Pentagon will not break

Today the power of development for major technology companies can be used for military purposes. Not every developer wants the same fate for their product. Google also avoids the application of its development of the armed forces, but their current company is not planning to break.

Diana Greene, the head of Google Cloud, wrote in a blog on the company's intention to continue implementation of the terms of the contract for work on the project, Maven Project, which was concluded in September 2017. She added that Google is not abandoning the agreements concluded, but the terms of the contract will be performed in accordance with the principles of the company's development of artificial intelligence.

Previously, Sundar Pichai has published a list of the guiding principles of the company's work with artificial intelligence. This list includes refraining from creating solutions that can be used as a weapon or could cause harm to people. Following these principles, thousands of Google employees spoke out against their leadership for participation in Project Maven and assistance to the Ministry of defense. In March it became known that artificial intelligence Google handles video with drones in the Pentagon.

Diana Greene assures that «limited» contract, Google really helps in the setup of artificial intelligence to recognize objects in low resolution video, but the sole purpose is «saving lives». In addition, she said that the contract will not be renewed, but the terms of the current agreement, the company will perform.

Google is in a difficult position. The company competes with Amazon, Oracle and Microsoft for government contracts for the use of cloud technologies. At the same time, staff consider that this makes the company «evil», of which they do not want to be.
