Google has set aside its controversial push to launch a censored search service in China, according to a new report by The Intercept, which first broke news of the project this summer.
Alphabet's latest move comes after hundreds of employees protested the project, known as Dragonfly, and would reflect another response on the part of executives to internal disagreement with company plans. Earlier this year Google said it would not renew a government contract related to artificial intelligence, after employees spoke out against the work.
