Google engineer’s secretive AI theft

A former software engineer at Google has been indicted by the U.S. Department of Justice for allegedly stealing trade secrets related to Google’s AI technologies. The stolen information includes crucial details about Google’s advanced supercomputing data centers, GPU and TPU chips, and the software used to orchestrate these systems for AI and machine learning tasks. The engineer covertly transferred over five hundred files containing proprietary data to his personal Google Cloud account, concealing his actions by converting them into PDFs and using Apple Notes to hide the source files.

The stolen data was then sent to two Chinese companies, including one where the engineer served as the Chief Technology Officer, without disclosing his affiliations to Google or his travels to China for investor meetings. Despite attempts to cover his tracks, the engineer was arrested in California and faces a potential 10-year prison sentence and hefty fines for each count of trade secret theft.
