GOOGLE Appoints Right-Wing Extremist Heritage Foundation President To It’s Advisory Council

Google has appointed the Kay Cole James, the president of the extremist right-wing group The Heritage Foundation to a position on its Advanced Technology External Advisory Council (ATEAC).

“Last June we announced Google’s AI Principles, an ethical charter to guide the responsible development and use of AI in our research and products. To complement the internal governance structure and processes that help us implement the principles, we’ve established an Advanced Technology External Advisory Council (ATEAC). This group will consider some of Google’s most complex challenges that arise under our AI Principles, like facial recognition and fairness in machine learning, providing diverse perspectives to inform our work. We look forward to engaging with ATEAC members regarding these important issues and are honored to announce the members of the inaugural Council”

Founded in 1973 by Joseph Coors (Coors Brewery), The Heritage Foundation is an extreme anti-immigration, anti-LGBT right wing conservative “think tank” based in Washington, D.C..

The Heritage Foundation has been described as a major influence on the presidential transition of Donald Trump and the Trump administration. The foundation had a powerful say in the staffing of the administration, with CNN noting during the transition that “no other Washington institution has that kind of footprint in the transition.”
