Google extends a helping hand to the projects aiming to use artificial intelligence for building a more humane society. It has decided to offer $25 million to them. But this just a part of a bigger initiative by Google called AI for Social Good. It aims to pacify anxious minds on the issue that artificial intelligence might take up millions of jobs and even be put into use by the military to kill lives. Other companies are too joining the initiative. Microsoft contributed $115 million to the organization promoting humanitarian and environmental projects. In a presentation in California, Google demonstrated that AI is a useful thing. It helps to diagnose various diseases, predict calamities and help people with disabilities. Despite promises Microsoft faced some opposition from its own workers that it is going against its own AI principles when it contracted with the US military. But it has assured to address if any ethical issue comes up because of the contract. Owing to the protest of employees Google keeps away from the contract and says $10 billion don’t worth bigger than its AI principles. At an annual company, conference google will be announcing the winner of the AI grant program the next summer.
