In the last period there have been many controversies regarding the involvement of Google with a military project of the Pentagon; a project which envisages "the use of artificial intelligence to analyze images of remotely piloted aircraft and identify targets".

Although Google promised to stop working on Project Maven and publicly committed to abiding by the new AI principles, the company still seems interested in remaining a defense contractor and working with the military in "many other areas".
He said Google is using AI "to help people tackle urgent problems" such as prediction of wildfires, helping farmers, diagnosing disease or preventing blindness, AFP reported. Google will not allow its AI to be used against principles of worldwide law and human rights. "How AI is developed and used will have a significant impact on society for many years to come", Pichai wrote. Pichai also pledges AI work at Google will not be used for undue surveillance or to contravene worldwide law or human rights.
