GOOGLE faces new protests over China search project...“Google risks irreversible damage to its reputation.”
FACES RENEWED PROTESTS AND CRITICISM OVER CHINA SEARCH PROJECT
“Google risks irreversible damage to its reputation.”
Google employees who worked on Dragonfly previously told The Intercept that company executives brushed aside human rights concerns during development of the search engine and related smartphone apps. In December, the internet giant sought to address some of these criticisms by making changes to its internal review processes. The company’s global affairs chief, Kent Walker, wrote in a blog post that the company had introduced a new ethics training course for employees and would establish a new group of “user researchers, social scientists, ethicists, human rights specialists, policy and privacy advisers, and legal experts” to assess new projects, products, and deals.
