At Google, we use AI to make products more useful—from email that’s spam-free and easier to compose , to a digital assistant you can speak to naturally , to photos that pop the fun stuff out for you to enjoy. As we consider potential development and uses of AI technologies, we will take into account a broad range of social and economic factors, and will proceed where we believe that the overall likely benefits substantially exceed the foreseeable risks and downsides. We will seek to avoid unjust impacts on people, particularly those related to sensitive characteristics such as race, ethnicity, gender, nationality, income, sexual orientation, ability, and political or religious belief. AI tools have the potential to unlock new realms of scientific research and knowledge in critical domains like biology, chemistry, medicine, and environmental sciences. As AI technologies progress, we’ll work with a range of stakeholders to promote thoughtful leadership in this area, drawing on scientifically rigorous and multidisciplinary approaches.

Google announced their principles for approaching AI. There's quite a bit about what Google aims to pursue, but I'd like to focus on the things that Sundar Pichai says they will *not* pursue instead:

1. Technologies that cause or are likely to cause overall harm. Where there is a material risk of harm, we will proceed only where we believe that the benefits substantially outweigh the risks, and will incorporate appropriate safety constraints.
2. Weapons or other technologies whose principal purpose or implementation is to cause or directly facilitate injury to people.
3. Technologies that gather or use information for surveillance violating internationally accepted norms.
4. Technologies whose purpose contravenes widely accepted principles of international law and human rights.

He notes that they will continue to work with governments (presumably multiple) and the military (presumably US only?), for anything but "AI for use in weapons". So there's a big area of potential engagement that might still be problematic, but it's interesting and pretty good anyway. What I'm not sure with is the alignment with one country's military but not others: Is that good, bad, understandable, necessary, or maybe a really bad idea? I'm honestly not sure at this point. Needs more mulling over. But overall, these principles are pretty much what you'd want to see.

(Full disclosure: I've worked with Google on multiple occasions.)

1. Be socially beneficial. 
The expanded reach of new technologies increasingly touch society as a whole. Advances in AI will have transformative impacts in a wide range of fields, including healthcare, security, energy, transportation, manufacturing, and entertainment. As we consider potential development and uses of AI technologies, we will take into account a broad range of social and economic factors, and will proceed where we believe that the overall likely benefits substantially exceed the foreseeable risks and downsides.

This document could be vastly improved by changing “AI” with “software”.
