TAIPEI (Taiwan News) A White House Petition was created last week after news broke that a controversial Chinese-American artificial intelligence (AI) expert was hired to serve on Twitter's board and accounts by Chinese dissidents started to disappear.
On May 11, Twitter in a press release announced that it was hiring Li Fei-Fei (李飛飛), an AI expert and former Vice President of Google, to its board of directors as a "new independent director" with immediate effect. Li quit Google in 2018 after a trail of leaked internal emails revealed that she appeared to be more concerned about the public relations damage to Google's image if news broke about the company's work on Project Maven than the ethical issues raised by over 3,000 Google employees.
Project Maven is a U.S. Department of Defense AI project which seeks to use the technology to help military drones select targets from video footage.
During her tenure at Google, there is no public record of Li objecting to the controversial Project Dragonfly, which was meant to be a search engine that would suit China's censorship rules, as she opened an AI research facility in Beijing.
When she took the helm of Google's new AI center in Beijing, Li was quoted in Chinese media as using the CCP slogan "stay true to our founding mission," and said that "China has awakened." In addition, Li allegedly has ties to a student association that is affiliated with the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP's) United Front, according to Radio Free Asia.

Big Tech has bought off enough members of both parties to do whatever they feel like doing.
OK Guys- The Prez is on this but needs our support. Social media should be like a public utility, the PUC regulates electricity, Natural gas, water, telephones. They need to take on social media, just because this Chinese stuff is an exestential threat the way this is being constituted
WTF would the US Military have such programs with American hating and compromised Google? DOD does know that everything will go right to China.
Sounds crazy, doesn’t it.
