Googling idiot shows Trump, Google CEO Sundar Pichai explains why

Sundar Pichai, A US lawmaker on Tuesday asked Google CEO Sundar Pichai that why do US President Donald Trump’s pictures show up on Google search for ‘idiot’. Pichai explained, “We take the keyword…match it against web pages and rank them based on over 200 signals like popularity…and how people are using it.” “Based on that, we find the search results,” Pichai added.

Sundar Pichai was answering the US Senate in a three-and-a-half hour session, facing queries about political bias, how it operates and also about data privacy of its users. A few months ago Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg faced a similar grilling, as did Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg and Twitter’s Jack Dorsey.

Pichai also faced a few other bizarre questions from US Senators, some of whom clearly don’t quite have a grip on how Google’s technology operates.

Sample this question from Iowa congressman (Republican) Steve King. The US congressman asked Google CEO Sundar Pichai, why a notification popped up on his seven-year-old grand-daughter’s iPhone showing a picture of her grandfather (King) before an election, with inappropriate language around it.

To which, Pichai had to explain that the “iPhone is made by a different company,” drawing peals of laughter from the democrat’s bench.
