Google to spearhead AI, tech global advisory council

Google announced plans March 26 to launch a global advisory council to focus on ethical issues introduced by artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies, Reuters reports.

The group will give recommendations to Google and other companies on AI technologies, such as facial recognition software, according to the report. It will comprise eight members, including former U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William J. Burns.

"We want to have the most informed and thoughtful conversations we can," Google Senior Vice President for Global Affairs Kent Walker said during a presentation at a Cambridge-based Massachusetts Institute of Technology conference in San Francisco, according to Reuters. "We want to sit down with the council and see what agenda they want to set."
