Microsoft employees have signed a letter calling for executive officials to open the proposed bid of the US military contract, which will see the technology power giant for the artificial intelligence used in the war in the next ten years.

This letter blames Microsoft for betraying its policies that "a plan for short-term profits" will force employees to create products that have no idea "whether our profile is being used to profile, monitor or kill".

"Many Microsoft employees do not believe what we create should be used for warfare.

"When we decided to work on Microsoft, we're doing this work in the hope of ending our life and not only to increase lethality but also to empower every person on the planet to earn more."

Little is known about how the government plans to use the proposed Cloud System for Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JDEI).

At an industry conference to discuss JDI, the chief of the US Department of Defense, John Gibson, revealed that the controversial program "was about to increase the lethality of our department".

Google has said that it has come out of the Bidding war, claiming that it will not conflict with AI principles. The company's internal rebellion was encountered in the US military to participate in the MAVEN program.

Closed on Friday the entry for Jeddah Bid and the open letter signed by Microsoft staff was published on the medium of the blogging website.

"Microsoft has submitted its tender to the JDI agreement on 12th October, we do not have the means to verify the authenticity of this letter, we always encourage employees to share our opinions," says a Microsoft spokesman.


The contract has proven to be very controversial for other reasons. The world's biggest cloud providers have asked to slam the process as a risk to some anti-competitive and potential military security.
