Google has now been fined nearly US$8 billion by the European Union, but the company seems to be undeterred in its mission to muddy the waters, issuing a riposte that is a mix of Orwellian statements, fact and fiction.
Five US politicians have written to Google chief executive Sundar Pichai, urging him to cut ties to the Chinese telecommunications firm Huawei Technologies, and pointing out that while Google is unwilling to help the US military, it is apparently willing to co-operate with the Chinese Communist Party.
Rank and file workers at Google, including a number of senior engineers, have submitted a letter to senior management to protest against a decision to provide technology to a US Defence Department programme that uses artificial intelligence to interpret video images and assist in targeting enemies in drone strikes.
The algorithm used by YouTube to recommend videos related to one that a user is viewing appears to often lead to conspiracy theories, partisan viewpoints and misleading clips, even though the viewer has not shown any interest in that kind of content.
Google chief executive Sundar Pichai topped a list of executives from the pay TV, telecommunications and wireless industries as far as total compensation for 2016 was concerned, according to newly compiled figures.
Google’s CEO, Larry Page, has promoted Chrome, Android and Google apps chief Sundar Pichai to a new No.2 spot with several more Google products now in Pichai’s pitcher.
