Your link didn't work, but I think I found the right one.
I disagree with some of the assertions in the piece.
First they say this: "DeepMind, an AI research company now housed under Google parent company Alphabet"
Then later they say this: "The leaders of the group, Verity Harding and Sean Legassick, described the external contributors as “a respected group of independent thinkers”
Working for a parent company of Google isn't what I would call "Independent".
Then there's this: "DeepMind has been criticized for falling short of what many would consider to be proper standards. In May 2016, the company came under fire after they were given access to confidential health data for 1.6 million people during the development of an app called Streams.
So... We have a company that isn't independent, and has already engaged in questionable activities regarding privacy and ethics.
While I do agree that there is a real need for a committee, the committee needs to be truly independent.
This sounds more like a PR group for Google.
Like they'll pretend to assess the risks and then offer up Google's position on the issue under the guise of being the voices of reason.
We, the World, need a real independent committee. Not a biased facsimile with a horse in the race.
