Google will not bid for $10B Pentagon cloud deal

Google LLC has decided not to bid for a $10 billion cloud computing contract with the U.S. Department of Defense, saying the project may go against its technology principles, Federal News Network reported Oct. 8.

The Alphabet Inc. unit said the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure project, which involves moving the department's data into the cloud, might not be aligned with its artificial intelligence principles, citing its use of a single vendor. It added that it believes in a multicloud approach that would allow government agencies to select the right cloud platform depending on the workload.

The company also cited portions of the JEDI contract that were out of its scope with its existing government certifications and requirements.

Google said it is open to future cloud-based projects with the defense department and other U.S. federal agencies, provided that they are transparent and multicloud-oriented, according to the report.

Google was supposedly in the race against Inc. and Microsoft Corp. to win a multibillion-dollar contract for the JEDI project.

The development came months after Google decided not to renew its partnership with the defense department for "Project Maven," which helped identify and track drones through artificial intelligence. The company reportedly reached the decision due in part to internal debate over the use of Google's technology for military purposes.

In June, Google CEO Sundar Pichai had said the tech giant will not use AI for technologies that can cause harm in weapons or in surveillance software.
