Former Google ethical AI team co-lead Timnit Gebru exposes unethical AI by Google & Big Tech (E1064)

On this special episode of Going Underground, we speak to the former co-leader of Google’s ethical AI team, Timnit Gebru, who is the co-founder of Black in AI. She discusses a toxic work culture within Google, where staff walkouts had occurred at the start of her tenure on the team, why she left what many would consider a dream job, the development of unethical AI by Google, unethical practices by other Big Tech companies such as Facebook and Amazon, the need for regulation, discriminatory algorithms and systems created by Big Tech firms that discriminate against not only the most marginalised in the United States but also those in places like Palestine, the problems caused by large language models, the founding of Black in AI and why the technology they develop is different to that of the billionaire-owned Big Tech companies, and much more!
