Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) announced a new external ethics council which will examine its development of AI

Google has set up a new external ethics council to oversee its development of AI, but one of its members has been criticized for her anti-trans and anti-immigrant views.

Google’s VP of Global Affairs Kent Walker announced the new Advanced Technology External Advisory Council (ATEAC) in a blog post on Tuesday.”This group will consider some of Google’s most complex challenges that arise under our AI Principles, like facial recognition and fairness in machine learning, providing diverse perspectives to inform our work,” Walker said.

Google has stoked anger around its development of AI in the past. In June last year, it killed off Project Maven- its military drone project – after a dozen employees resigned in protest.

Kay Coles James called out for her views

William Joseph Burns was Barack Obama’s secretary of state from 2011 to 2014, and prior to that was ambassador to Jordan and Russia.Kay Coles James is president of the conservative think tank the Heritage Foundation. Os Keyes, a researcher at the University of Washington, criticised Google’s appointment of James on Twitter, saying she has expressed anti-trans and anti-immigrant views.

James has previously opposed allowing “biological males” in women’s bathrooms, according to a tweet, and supported Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency over his proposed border wall as ” thousands of illegal aliens, dangerous criminals, drug smugglers and sex traffickers crossing [sic] the border every day.”

Momentum Indicators

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.

Stochastic Oscillator

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 16.5389. This is an oversold reading. However, a signal is not generated until the Oscillator crosses above 20 The last signal was a sell 2 period(s) ago.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 52.31. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 3 period(s) ago.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)

The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -75. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 3 period(s) ago.


The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 1 period(s) ago.
