Google will meet next week with America’s military brass to allay Washington’s concerns that it’s helping China’s artificial intelligence (AI) program while refusing to assist the Pentagon with tech initiatives.

Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford said on Thursday that the internet giant is “assisting the Chinese military in advancing technology,” and such an effort “is not in U.S. national interests.” He made the remarks at Atlantic Council event, an American think-tank.

At last week’s Senate testimony, he said Google “indirectly benefits the Chinese military.” At the same congressional hearing, acting secretary of defense Patrick Shanahan voiced concerns that American innovation is being used against itself. That is, U.S. tech is stolen by China only to weaken America’s businesses and military competitive edge.
