Google employees demand the company cancel all police contracts - Digital Trends

Posted: 22 Jun 2020 10:40 PM PDT

More than 1,600 workers at Google have put their name to a letter to CEO Sundar Pichai demanding that the company stop selling its products and technology to police departments.

The move comes amid growing calls for police reform as part of efforts to tackle systemic racism.

Noting the protest movement that began with George Floyd's murder and which has since expanded globally "into a rebellion against racism and police terror," the letter demands that Google ends its ties with police departments and stops selling everything from its relatively innocuous G Suite software (Google Docs, Gmail, etc.) to more contentious facial recognition software.

The letter, signed by "Googlers against racism," highlights several cases, including that of Gradient Ventures, a venture capital arm of Google that focuses on supporting artificial intelligence-related companies, one of which has helped police to track people crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.

It also mentions Google's ongoing contract with Clarkstown Police in New York, which the employees point out "has been sued multiple times for illegal surveillance of Black Lives Matter organizers." In a "customer story" on the Google Cloud site, the police department says how it's able to save up to $30,000 a year in IT licensing costs by using Google products.

"We're disappointed to know that Google is still selling to police forces, and advertises its connection with police forces as somehow progressive, and seeks more expansive sales rather than severing ties with police and joining the millions who want to defang and defund these institutions," the letter says, adding, "Why help the institutions responsible for the knee on George Floyd's neck to be more effective organizationally?"

The employees told Pichai: "We want to be proud of the company we work for. We want the company we build to speak to our values and how we want to show up in the world."

The letter follows a message to employees posted a week ago by Pichai in which he laid out new commitments to racial equity within the company that included increasing Black employees in senior positions and an ambition to expand leadership representation of underrepresented groups by 30% in the next five years. The web giant also promised to invest $175 million in supporting Black business owners, startup founders, and job seekers.

In a re-evaluation of how its technology is used, Amazon earlier this month imposed a one-year moratorium on police use of its facial recognition technology, called Rekognition. It arrived at the decision after activists pressured members of Congress to regulate or ban the use of the technology for police activity, and said it wants Congress to consider imposing tighter regulations on the technology before the moratorium ends.

In a similar move, IBM announced recently that it will no longer develop facial recognition software, saying it would "not condone uses of any technology, including facial recognition technology offered by other vendors, for mass surveillance, racial profiling, violations of basic human rights and freedoms," or for any purpose that is not consistent with its values and principles.

Digital Trends has reached out to Google to find out about its response to the letter, and whether it intends to continue working with police forces, and we will update this piece when we hear back.

Mixer was a pawn in the high-stakes game between Microsoft and Google - Digital Trends

Posted: 22 Jun 2020 03:40 PM PDT

Microsoft's surprise sale of its Mixer streaming platform to Facebook could be its biggest bet on the next generation of gaming.

By partnering with Facebook — and its 2.38 billion users — Microsoft seems to be subtly positioning itself for the coming battle with Google (and Sony) over game streaming. And it all hints at a much bigger conflict further down the road.

Despite Microsoft's best efforts, Mixer never really grew into a major player in the streaming market. It launched after Twitch had already amassed a dominant position, and despite spending big to lure personalities like Ninja and Shroud, it couldn't find a notable base. (Ninja and Shroud's contracts with the service ended with the sale — and, reportedly, neither opted to sign with Facebook, despite huge financial incentives.) Microsoft could have attempted a reboot with the debut of the Xbox Series X, but instead, it cut its losses and took a longer-term approach.

The launch of new systems from Microsoft and Sony later this year has people thinking about the next round of the console wars. That will be a fun thing for zealots of both systems to argue about for a little while, but many within the industry think the future lies in game streaming.

Google was first to market with a major standalone streaming service. And while Stadia hasn't set the world on fire yet due to a rocky launch, the company still has plenty of time to work the kinks out. More importantly, Google has yet to introduce what many expect to be Stadia's most compelling feature: Integrating YouTube streaming — and launching into the service from those streams.

Before the pandemic hit, Google had planned to launch that integration late this summer, according to sources with knowledge of the company's timeline. The timing is less certain now, due to the complications of stay-at-home orders.

It's a feature Google has been excited about since it first unveiled Stadia last year, however.

"Creators become a very important part of our platform," said Phil Harrison, vice president at Google, last March. "A Creator can be talking about the latest game or the latest feature for a game and their subscribers and fans can click and instantly play that experience — and, in some cases, play that experience with the Creator. We're bringing those two experiences together and that's powered by technology that only Google has."

Note that last sentence. It was a line in the sand.

Microsoft was working on a similar feature for xCloud, its own game streaming service, and Mixer. By transferring Mixer to Facebook, the company now has a bigger showcase to show off the technology – and, if the gamble pays off, xCloud can tap into millions of people who can't afford or don't want to pay for a high-end dedicated gaming system, but still want to enjoy the most recent games. (In a release announcing the move, Microsoft and Facebook noted that more than 700 million people play games, watch gaming videos, or engage in gaming groups on Facebook each month.)

There's another layer here. While Facebook now becomes a Twitch (and, thus, Amazon) competitor, Mark Zuckerberg has not shown a passion for the game space. He's more interested in user information — and he'll get plenty from streamers and their viewers. So while you might see some sniping between those two companies, that will be more of a distraction.

Amazon, though, owns a big portion of the video game industry's backbone through its Amazon Web Services unit. Microsoft is fighting to control more of it. Google's not really a player in that market right now, but it's not disinterested. (Facebook has its own servers and data centers.)

Eventually, that battle will merge with game streaming and, quite likely, services like Mixer and Twitch. That's when things could get really interesting — and the real boss battle may begin for a dominant position in the video game industry.

First, though, Microsoft needs to make its way through a few other levels. The Xbox Series X has to hold its own against PlayStation 5. It will launch its next offensive in that face-off on July 11. Then, as game streaming begins to gain an audience — and true integration with content creators becomes more common — it will square off with Google.

It's hardly the path of least resistance. Then again, Microsoft has never been a company that's afraid of shaking up the status quo.
