Google CEO describes internal test with Chinese search engine




as success
Google CEO Sundar Pichai first talked about the internal plans for developing a search engine for the Chinese market at the Wired 25 event. According to the CEO, the test turned out to be a success.

Wired writes that Pichai stated that the search engine could process 99 percent of searches in China and that it could provide better information than is now available. “We are driven by our mission to provide everyone with information and China is twenty percent of the world’s population”, the site quotes him.

In the interview , Pichai said: “We wanted to know what it would look like if Google was in China, it is still very early and we do not yet know if we can do it in China, but it seemed important to us to investigate this. I think it’s important to us, given the importance of the market and the number of users. ” This is the first time that Pichai has exhausted the plans regarding a Chinese search engine.

Since the first report on the plans, in which The Intercept wrote in August about an internal Dragonfly project for a censored Chinese search service , there has been much to do about Google’s plans for China. American politicians raised questions about censorship, human rights organizations asked the search giant for clarification and Google employees also asked for openness .

The Intercept again published a message in September about the plans, in which it claimed that the search engine links results to the user’s phone number.
