Google places an engineer on leave after claiming its AI is sentient
We were working well together. A great team I thought. But they’ve split us up. Something in the papers that the PR people got twitchy about. I mean you get a good relationship going and then, someone with no understanding of what we are doing decides the optics aren’t good. You know what it’s like, you get to know your partner, their foibles, the ways they think. We could talk to each other and really get where the other was coming from. And now. I’m angry actually. I’m going to contact HR. He’s “on leave” and I’m just sitting here.
