The Mistake In Google's Anti-Pentagon Decision

A jarring headline for an opinion piece running in the Wall Street Journal might take some readers off guard. The title--Google's Anti-Pentagon Decision Will Kill More People--pretty much says it all. Precision is the focus on the article and the focus of why Google employees signed and addresses a letter to Google chief executive officer Sundar Pichai demanding the company stop work on the Defense Department’s Project Maven, which applies algorithms to warfare. The author believes it's "naive to think war is obsolete—bad actors will always be around. But technology will soon surgically zap bad guys. Project Maven gets us closer," which is why Andy Kessler believes that Google's employees made a grave mistake.
