A senior Google research scientist has quit the company in protest over its plan to launch a censored version of its search engine in China.
Jack Poulson worked for Googles research and machine intelligence department, where he was focused on improving the accuracy of the companys search systems.
In early August, Poulson raised concerns with his managers at Google after The Intercept revealed that the internet giant was secretly developing a Chinese search app for Android devices. The search system, code-named Dragonfly, was designed to remove content that Chinas authoritarian government views as sensitive, such as information about political dissidents, free speech, democracy, human rights, and peaceful protest.

Now all thats left is people without values working there. I guess he showed them!
Sounds like Google will have near 100% overlap on the capabilities they seek to build for the Communist Chinese dictatorship, and the US Democratic Party.
Judging by the environment in that company, if he were open about his views, they would quickly have found reason to fire him anyway.
ROFL! Yeah right, like Goolag has an UNcensored version of its search engine in use. Sure, uh huh.
Luckily, some of that has changed with the Trump administration, but there is still a long way to go.
Probably afraid that when someone searches “authoritarian regime”, instead of Chairman Xi they’ll get links to Google’s top executives.
Five years ago, it was still decent.
I finally got serious and removed them as a default search engine after the James Damore incident. Duck, people. Make it your default search, minimize Alphabet/Google use.
Make Duck Duck Go your DEFAULT search engine on your PHONES and on your computers. Protect your PRIVACY.
Values? Google? Your talking about an organization whose leaders would sell their own mother into prostitution and then celebrate.
Duck is my default too. The irony in this story is rich. The Google top brass just got caught admitting in a video of their disgust of Trump winning the presidency. Work with brutal Communist Chinese dictators? No problem! “We be fine with them, they are our soul mates!”
I guess now that they are openly discriminating against conservatives in America doing the same things for other fellow communist in other countries is part of the plan.
If Google is now Communist we should ban it in the West
And Google gets a little more evil...
Google is evil.
I dropped Google a year ago - though occasionally I use Google Maps. Which search engine offers unbiased search? I currently use DuckDuckGo but more on faith than an understanding of its objectivity and completeness. Any thoughts on it?
Not so much a fortune as an exposure.
I watched in mounting horror in mid-July 2008, as google systematically and deliberately 'disappeared' over half a million hits on image searches for 'obama birth certificate'.
That's a wee bit over 10 years ago, I don't see much difference...
Fahrenheit 404: google doesnt need to burn books, they just edit the inconvenient facts out of the search results...
I think DuckDuckgo uses Google algorithms so you might get the same biased search results. The positive is they say they dont track you.
