Google Backing-off from US Military AI Project

California based company Google is said to end its working on AI Drone Projects for US Department of Defense in collaboration with Pentagon. Google will not renew the deal that will expire in March 2019. The contract is reported to be worth less than $10m (£7.5m) to Google but could potentially lead to more extensive cooperation with the Pentagon.

Google took the demand of workers in account and has decided to stop working on the project.
