Two Google engineers quit over wrongly firing of Timnit Gebru and Christina Curley

David Baker, an engineering director and Vinesh Kannan, a software developer have resigned from Google for the alleged wrongly firing of Timnit Gebru, AI-researcher and April C Curley, a recruiter; both identified as Black. This has come after the signs of conflicts over diversity and ethics difference emerge at the search giants. Recently, 800 people joined a union demanding workplace protections and 2,600 out of 135,000 employees signed a letter supporting Gebru.
