Googlers, eggheads urge web giant's bosses to kick top conservative off its AI ethics council

Joanna Bryson

I ran into this while trying to wrap up my CV for the year (academics have to show we have "impact" including talking to the media...) I just want to thank the Register, Rebecca Hill, and Katyanna Quach for some of the best, most balanced, and least sensationalised reporting that came out during this whole ATEAC thing.

Re: Articles of Faith

Sorry for the late reply – they were partnering with Pelosi (leading liberal & Democrat in the US lower house) on fighting foreign cyber interference with US elections at the time all this went down. I didn't know that then though. Also, it's apparently amazing they had either a black person or a woman as their head, they used to be too conservative for that.

The only reason I'd heard of them at that time though was because of people complaining because Gates donated to them.

Joanna Bryson is a woman

I'd just like to point that out. Not all AI is written by men.

:-D But I'm actually a woman (despite being an engineer and a scientist.)

US expat casts ballot from Vienna, wonders if anyone got it

auditing voting

If you go to the verified voting website, you find out that quite a few states in the US still have no paper trail and even more have no mandatory auditing. So indeed the Democrats Abroad are no worse than voting in, say, Texas.


Hopefully random external audits of elections will become an international democratic norm... one of these years!
