President Trump indicated there may be a US investigation of Google after tech mogul, Peter Thiel, suggested that the company has been working and sharing its artificial intelligence (AI) information with the Chinese military instead of US armed forces — and that top management has become a hotbed for Chinese spies. Thiel posed questions for investigators’ probe into Google’s AI software: “How many foreign intelligence agencies have infiltrated Google? Have the Chinese, in particular, infiltrated? And why are you working with Communist China and not the U.S.?” Google replied that it does not work with the Chinese military. -GEG

President Trump said his administration will probe Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel’s claims that Google has “seemingly treasonous” ties with China.

Trump signaled there will be a US investigation after Thiel over the weekend suggested that Google has been actively working with the Chinese military instead of the US armed forces — and that top management has become a hotbed for Chinese spies.

In a Tuesday morning tweet, Trump called Thiel — a libertarian tech tycoon who helped bankroll Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign — a “great and brilliant guy who knows this subject better than anyone,” and said that the “Trump Administration will take a look!”

In a Sunday speech before the National Conservatism Conference in Washington, DC, Thiel said Google should be investigated by the FBI and CIA “in a not excessively gentle manner.” He didn’t provide any evidence for his concerns, but urged investigators to ask the search giant three questions.

“Number one, how many foreign intelligence agencies have infiltrated your Manhattan Project for AI?” Thiel said, likening Google parent Alphabet’s DeepMind artificial intelligence project to the secret US program that developed the atomic bomb.

“Number two, does Google’s senior management consider itself to have been thoroughly infiltrated by Chinese intelligence?” Thiel asked.

Lastly, he said the feds should ask Google executives if they “consider themselves to be so thoroughly infiltrated that they have engaged in the seemingly treasonous decision to work with the Chinese military and not with the US military” because the tech would be stolen by China anyway.

Under pressure from its own employees, Google last summer pledged that it would not use AI in ways that could be considered unethical, declining to renew a contract with the US military to use its AI technology to analyze drone footage.

Jeff calls the politicians, developers, and non-profit agencies that flourish in this racket “poverty pimps,” because homeless people are a commodity – something you use to make money. He says the LA Police Department is also in on the scam. They have a $2-billion budget that would go away if the crime rate dropped.
