Is Google really helping China’s military?

Peter Thiel's New York Times Opinion piece

Asia AI News 3 August 2019 –  PayPal co-founder and tech billionaire Peter Thiel published an opinion piece in the New York Times at the end of the week – ‘Good for Google, Bad for America’ – in a follow-up to his Washington DC speech a couple of weeks ago, during which he called for a probe into Google’s ‘seemingly treasonous acts’.
