Google said a researcher has left the company after allegations of sexual harassment, the latest reaction to widening evidence of misconduct across the technology industry and other sectors.

Steven Scott served as a director of statistics research at Google since 2008. In December, a data scientist named Kristian Lum posted a blog on sexual harassment in Bayesian statistics, a field that underpins artificial intelligence, where Google and other tech giants are investing deeply.
