Former Deputy Secretary of Defense Bob Work discusses Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Joseph Dunford’s comments about Google’s relationship with the Chinese Government and the ongoing relationship between the federal government and private sector.


Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Joseph Dunford said during a Senate Armed Services committee hearing in March that the work Google is doing for the Chinese government indirectly benefits the Chinese military. This comes in the wake of Google choosing to discontinue their relationship with the Department of Defense’s artificial intelligence initiative, Project Maven, last summer. Former Deputy Secretary of Defense Bob Work says that there is concern within DoD regarding Google’s partnership with China.   “We are in a long term strategic competition with China and Russia. China is by far the most difficult competitor that we’ve ever faced, primarily because of the size of its population, the resources that it has, its economy and its technology. It really is trying to come up to the level of U.S. technology and surpass it in as many categories as it can,” Work tells Government Matters. “The second point that [Gen. Dunford] makes is the United States Department of Defense has always relied on a close relationship with the U.S. industrial base and the commercial sector. You saw it in World War II in a grand manner, a total war, where the connections between the Department of Defense and the commercial industry was seamless.”
