Artificial intelligence researchers have called on Google to abandon a project developing AI technology for the military, warning that autonomous weapons directly contradict the firm’s famous ‘Don’t Be Evil’ motto.

The partnership between the technology giant and the US Military involves using customised AI surveillance software to analyse data from drone footage in order to better recognise target objects, such as distinguishing between a human on the ground and a vehicle.

“If ethical action on the part of tech companies requires consideration of who might benefit from a technology and who might be harmed, then we can say with certainty that no topic deserves more sober reflection - no technology has higher stakes - than algorithms meant to target and kill at a distance and without public accountability.” Other fears detailed in the letter include the possibility of Google integrating the personal data of its users with military surveillance data for the purpose of targeted killing.
