Google CEO Sundar Pichai offered a new justification for the company's exploration of a censored version of its search engine for people in China: it already censors information elsewhere. In a New York Times interview published Thursday, Pichai compared Europe's "right to be forgotten laws" to censorship when asked about launching a search product in China. "One of the things that's not well understood, I think, is that we operate in many countries where there is censorship. When we follow 'right to be forgotten' laws, we are censoring search results because we're complying with the law," Pichai told the Times. ...

CEO Sundar Pichai says Google’s China search engine, a censored version of the original product, would still serve over 99% of queries. Photo: Pradeep Gaur/MintAt the outset, let me make clear that I am not a proponent of barriers to trade. Neither am I supportive of muzzling free speech. With that said, I would like to dwell today on how China’s government has been successful in giving its home-grown internet giants a stranglehold on the domestic market by using censorship as a trade barrier.Last week, Google CEO Sundar Pichai told the Wired 25 conference that his company had been testing a version of its search engine named “Project Dragonfly” that would pass muster with China’s censors. Pichai said he was excited about the result of the tests; he reported that the censored version wo

Google CEO Sundar Pichai was upbeat Monday when he told WIRED about internal tests of a censored search engine designed to win approval from Chinese officials. It will take more than a government nod for Google to succeed, however.That’s not only because of the political tensions raised by President Trump’s tariffs on Chinese goods, which analysts say make Google’s expansion unlikely. China’s competitive—and cooling—search market doesn’t seem to offer much space for a US entrant. “Because Google has been absent for years, it has a lot of distance to make up,” says Raymond Feng, director of research at Pacific Epoch in Shanghai, which tracks China’s internet markets. Google declined to comment on its strategy around search in China.Google offered a censored version of its search engine f

"It turns out we'll be able to serve well over 99 percent of the queries," he said on stage. The executive defended the project, telling people that Google is "compelled by [its] mission [to] provide information to everyone," but it also has to follow the laws in every country. 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.Pichai said that there are many areas where Google could provide "information better than what's available" to people in China. The search engine could lead to reliable cancer treatment info, for instance, instead of the fake information they might be getting elsewhere. The Google CEO also said during the...

Google CEO Sundar Pinchai has said a separate, censored version of its search engine for the Chinese market has undergone several successful internal tests. The comments are the first time Google has officially confirmed it is working on the search engine, dubbed Project Dragonfly, which has been criticised heavily by human rights organisations. Pinchai defended the decision of working on a search engine which will censor any results critical of the Chinese government by saying providing some information is better than providing no information at all. "We are compelled by our mission [to] provide information to everyone, and [China is] 20 percent of the world's population," the Google CEO said during the Wired25 conference, as reported by the organiser, Wired.

Justin Sullivan / Getty Images Google has told U.S. lawmakers that it's considering “a variety of options” to offer additional services in China. The company declined to detail plans for addressing the censorship that the Chinese government would require in any of Google's apps and services. The company has come under criticism after reports it was considering re-entering China’s search engine market, and that it would comply with its internet censorship and surveillance policies.
