BetaNews: Google closes down its AI ethics council just one week after its launch

BetaNews: Google closes down its AI ethics council just one week after its launch. “Google has announced that it is closing down its artificial intelligence ethics council following controversy about board members. The Advanced Technology External Advisory Council (ATEAC) was formed just a week ago, but there was strong criticism of the decision to appoint Heritage Foundation president Kay Coles James to the board.” Wow, that’s fast even for Google.
