A member of Google's disbanded AI ethics council said on Wednesday that the company's enormous global influence means it needs to be treated like a world power. Joanna Bryson, an associate professor in computer science at the University of Bath, spoke about Google's short-lived AI ethics council at the CognitionX conference in London. She was joined by De Kai, a fellow former council member and AI expert at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. The pair were speaking at a panel on governance and accountability in AI, and the moderator asked them to address the "elephant in the room." The Google council was disbanded in April after criticism of the appointment of Kay Coles James, the head of a right-wing thinktank who been accused of anti-LGBTQ and anti-immigrant rhetoric.
