Google drops $10bn battle for Pentagon cloud computing contract



Google has abandoned efforts to win a $10bn (£7.7bn) Pentagon cloud computing contract.

 
The firm said the work might have transgressed principles it published in June limiting its artificial-intelligence-related activities.


Thousands of its staff had previously protested against its involvement in a separate Department of Defense project.


The tech firm revealed the latest decision hours after confirming it had exposed Google+ users' personal data.
