This is why you get Trump image when you Google 'Idiot'

Pichai was called to the House Judiciary Committee following a series of attacks by President Donald Trump and his supporters claiming that Google and other internet platforms were suppressing conservative voices, despite persistent denials from the companies.

"To do otherwise would go against our core principles and our business interests", Pichai added.

"This effort now is an internal effort", the CEO responded.

Weinberg, an MIT graduate, founded DuckDuckGo in 2008 with the intention to offer a perfectly unbiased alternative to Google and other search engines.

Tech companies building AI should factor in ethics early in the process to make certain artificial intelligence with "agency of its own" doesn't hurt people, Pichai said in an interview with the Washington Post. They are controlling what we can & cannot see. "Can we explore and serve users in China, in areas like education and health care?"

"Currently we are not in discussions around launching a search product in China", Pichai assured Cicilline. But the two parties still appeared to share broad concerns about Google's algorithms and data-gathering on the Android mobile operating system and other Google offerings, such as its dominant search engine.

Tampons recalled for unraveling issue
Only specific lots of the tampons distributed between October 17, 2016 and October 23, 2018 are affected by this recall . There have also been reports of infections, vaginal irritation and "localized vaginal injury", the company said.

Mr Pichai replied that equally negative news was highlighted when people used the search term "Google". Google's CEO was summoned to the US Congress to explain to Democratic Representative Zoe Lofgren why this happens.

Goodlatte said the tech giant was "able to collect an amount of information about its users that would even make the NSA [National Security Agency] blush", arguing that the company needed to be more transparent about what it does with location and other data on Android-powered devices.

The senator asks a question about this connection and grilled Google SEO.

One of the more contentious issues discussed and one that is now causing internal discord at the company was that of "Project Dragonfly", a censored search engine made for China.

"As a leader in AI, we feel a deep responsibility to get this right".

He continued: "I'm confident we don't approach our work with any political bias". He responded saying the repeated attempts of hacks are actually "bullish signals that cryptocurrency is here to stay for the long-term". When it comes to outlandish conspiracy theory videos, hate speech or hardcore content appearing on children's channels, he said, "there's more work to be done. And I'm not gonna say into the record what kind of language was use around that picture of her grandfather, but I'd ask how does that show up on a 7-YO's iPhone, who's playing a kid's game?"
