Hundreds of Google staff have signed a letter backing a leading AI ethics researcher who was sacked by Google.

Axar.az reports that Timnit Gebru says she was fired after sending an internal email that accused Google of "silencing marginalized voices".

Hundreds of colleagues have signed a letter accusing the search giant of racism and censorship, while Twitter users have rallied around Ms. Gebru using the hashtag #BelieveBlackWomen.

Google disputes her version of events.

Ms. Gebru is a well-respected researcher in the field of ethics and the use of artificial intelligence.

She is well-known for her work on racial bias in technology such as facial recognition, and has criticised systems that fail to recognize black faces.

Her co-author on one of those well-known papers, Joy Buolamwini, said Ms Gebru "deserved more" from Google.
