Google’s CEO Defends Potential Return to China

Google CEO defended the decision of working on the search engine by saying providing some information is better than providing no information at all

If they received an answer, we don't know, but yesterday Yesterday, during a conference in San Francisco, Sundar Pichai, Google's CEO, gave some insights about the company's pans regarding China.

Pichai said that by offering a search engine in China again, Google would be able to provide some 800 million users with better information than what is available on important subjects, such as cancer treatments.

Google has not been available in China for the past decade, and its possible return has caused an outcry among employees and U.S. politicians.

However, eventually, Google pulled out of China completely in 2010 after several large-scale attacks on the company purportedly by the Chinese government.

China serves as home to 20 percent of the world's population, after all, and its absence in the nation means it's missing out on such a huge number of potential users. "I think it's important for us given how important the market is and how many users there are". "We wanted to learn what it would look like if Google were in China", Pichai said.

Pichai's comments on Monday suggested that Dragonfly was an experiment to see if Google could operate a search engine in China without violating government restrictions but he underlined that Google was committed to its values of freedom of expression, user privacy and the rule of law.

"It's not just a one-way street". He said Google very much supports the United States armed forces. "We have built a set of hacks and we have kept them".

Google's possible return to China - a market it abandoned over censorship concerns in 2010 - was first leaked in August by The Intercept which reported that the United States tech giant was secretly developing "Dragonfly", a custom-made search engine for the huge Chinese market. "It's an important input we take seriously". The developments also come at a sensitive time for US-China relations amid an escalating trade and technology war.

The project, code-named Dragonfly, is not only real but is already performing to the satisfaction of top Google executives.

Throughout this period, Google has fielded a barrage of criticism, from a senior scientist resigning from the company to senators fretting that the company would enable China's "repressing and manipulating" of its citizens. "We are thoughtfully considering a variety of options for how to offer services in China in a way that is consistent with our mission".

Since news of the "Dragonfly" project first leaked, hundreds of Google employees signed a letter saying that it raised "urgent moral and ethical issues", CNBC reported.

The project was made public in August, when anxious Google employees took internal documents to the press.
