Google, despite drawing less public ire than Facebook, stores far more personal data on users than the social media giant. Google can store every page a user visits, everywhere they’ve taken their phone and everything you download, watch, save or search for, and it can do these things across multiple different devices. It also stores every Gmail and Google Drive document you’ve ever had, even if you’ve deleted it. Google uses this information to build massively long and complex records on you and everyone else on the internet. This makes development like Google’s work on autonomous weapons systems and restructuring into Alphabet particularly disturbing, as it suggests that Google may be “the wrong hands” for all that information.
- Facebook has been heavily criticized for deceitful use of data, but Google has been equally corrupt.
- Google stores all your history from searches to deleted Google Drive files.
- In a an internal video never meant for the public to see, Google implied that people we are vessels for their genes – except using data for its equivalent.
“Google hit the news a few months ago when it revealed it was providing artificial intelligence (AI) to the US military through something called “Project Maven”. That AI, it was claimed, would be used to kill people more efficiently.”
