Google workers demand reinstatement, apology for fired AI ethics researcher

Google employees have sent a letter to senior leadership demanding that the company reinstate and apologize to Timnit Gebru, a prominent AI researcher who alleged she was fired after criticizing the company’s diversity efforts. The letter to management comes following a public letter of support for Gebru, signed by nearly 2,700 Google employees and more than 4,300 academic researchers and others.

Wasn't that the one writting a letter full of demands and ending it with saying that either her demands are fullfilled or they have to fire her and then she was fired? If so I would have fired her as well...

So, in other words, 95,000 employees didn't sign the petition.

"Members of a prestigious research unit at Google have sent a letter to the company's chief executive demanding that ousted artificial intelligence researcher Timnit Gebru be reinstated." I have my doubts that anyone describes this group as prestigious, outside the media and their 'unbiased' reporting of course.

So she threatened to quit and did I fail to see the logic here. I don't like google anymore then any other person but this appears to be her doing.

She stood by her ethics and they stood by theirs. It is a choice she made.

I wonder how many of her critics would change their tune, if she had criticized Google policies for discriminating against White workers.

You know, we don't really know all the details- exactly what led to the letter that is said to trigger the events, what was her relationship with her bosses and her subordinates, all kinds of things. So, if one doesn't dwell into details, this all looks like some woke farce - the very woke and probably smart person working for one of the wokest companies getting fired over things that relate to woke and starting a woke storm... Scratching my head on this one...

Ok Google, what will you do now? You helped create and protect this baby, which has now grown into a monster. Its time to cave and be consumed.

For people bashing Timnit, I found this comment from someone and it puts me on the side of Timnit: “As someone who was a researcher at Xerox's Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) for 20 years, I find the internal review process for Google researchers deeply troubling. At PARC our research papers were reviewed for intellectual property only, with questions of the quality of research content left up to peer review. An internal, corporate review process runs the serious risk of acting as a mode of censorship above and beyond questions of IP. So regardless of chronology, I think this process raises serious questions about research integrity at Google, particularly for those like Timnit Gebru who are committed to critical thinking about technology.”
