Google Creates AI Ethics Board, Then Dissolves It

Google created an advisory board, called the Advanced Technology External Advisory Council (ATEAC), earlier this week. ATEAC’s mission was to govern Google’s use of Artificial Intelligence (AI), a topic which has long inspired controversy. However, the members the company selected seemed to inspire just as much controversy, and Google just announced the board was dissolved following public outcry. Apparently there were some conflicts on interest. ATEAC was formed and dismissed all in the same week. Wow!
