Zachary Vorhies, former Google software engineer, whistleblower and patent holder, turned over a 950 page cache to the Department of Justice (Antitrust Division) in August/2019.
“The reason why I collected these documents was because I saw something dark and nefarious going on with the company (Google). I felt that our entire election system was going to be compromised for ever, by this company that told the American public that it was not going to do any evil... they were intending to sculpt the information landscape, so that they could create their own version of what was objectively true.”
Zach Vorhies (August 2019)
Vorhies claims his former company created algorithms to hide its political bias within artificial intelligence platforms – in effect targeting particular words, phrases and contexts to promote, alter, reference or manipulate perceptions of Internet content.
“The issue is that the free market has been distorted and what’s happened is that the distortion is so grotesque and the engineering is so repulsive, all we need to do is just expose what’s going on. People can hear that it is bad but that can be bias. But when they see what Google has actually written with the documents, this will actually be taught in universities of what totalitarian states can do with this type of capability.. The world that google is building is not a place I, or you or our children want to live in.””
