Tech investor Peter Thiel has criticized major US technology companies for ดาวน์โหลด slotxo android being too close to China in an appearance Tuesday at a virtual reality event hosted by the Richard Nixon Foundation.Thiel, the PayPal co-founder and sitting on Facebook's board after making early investments, is an outspoken voice in the tech investment world, known for its opposition and conservative bias.

Thiel criticized Google for working in artificial intelligence with Chinese universities, in part because of the conversations he claimed to have with people at the company, according to a record of incidents reviewed.Because everything in China is a mix of civilians and military, Google works effectively with the Chinese military, not with the American army," Thiel said. Chinese people because "they think they might let the technology come out of the front door as well, because if they don't, it will be stolen anyway.A Google spokesperson told CNBC: “These allegations are unfounded. We do not work with the Chinese soldiers.

We are proud to continue our long history of working with the US Government and the Department of Defense in many areas including cybersecurity, recruiting and healthcare.Thiel previously criticized Google in 2019, saying the FBI and CIA should investigate Google and ask if Chinese spies invade.Thiel also said Apple is unlikely to face China due to a large supply chain producing iPhones and other products in the country.He noted that other big tech companies such as Facebook, Amazon and Microsoft had no business interest.
