After Google decided to nix its AI advisory board when employees objected to the addition of Heritage President Kay Coles James, Heritage experts spoke out about how trends in the Big Tech world are jeopardizing liberty.
Klon Kitchen, Heritage’s senior fellow for technology and science policy, laid out some of the conservative recommendations that James would have made had Google not dissolved the advisory board. Find out what they are here.
Helle Dale, Heritage’s senior fellow in public diplomacy, warned that tech titans “end up undermining the very ideals on which they were founded when they cave to pressure from left-wing ideologues who cannot abide diversity of opinion.” You can read her new commentary piece in the Daily Signal.
Arthur Milikh, research fellow and associate director of Heritage’s Simon Center, explained how Big Tech companies justify censorship through their embrace of the concept of “Freedom of Expression” instead of “Freedom of Speech.” Learn about this important distinction here.
