Donald Trump's Face Appears When You Google 'Idiot'

Discussion in 'Politics & Religion' started by kamero, Jul 1, 2019.

    Finally CEO of Google Mr. Sundar Pichai Explains that why Donald Trump's Face Appears When You Google 'Idiot'.

    This Embarrassing Question has been asked by Democratic Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren during a recent Congressional hearing in the US.

    He said that, Google Algorithm collates the Data from Millions of Web pages collected, which has been stored by google to generates various results for any term that is searched on Google search engine.

    Any time a key word is searched, the algorithm tries to match it against the existing web pages in its index. These results are then ranked according to 'signals' like "relevance, freshness, popularity, how other people are using it," among other things. There are a total of 200 signals that Google uses to rank the search results.

    Basically, what Pichai said was that when a keyword is searched Google images, the results come up with images that use the term as a meta tag. In this context, it means that thousands of people have uploaded images of Trump with 'idiot' as a tag resulting in the unsavory association.

    Finally, He said to the Democratic Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren that there is no one at the Head Quarter sitting behind the search screen messing with Trump.

    Well, Now They are taking care of this.

    Thanks. !!!

    Did you really think it was by design?

    Google has been used over the last decade for many "stunts" like this.

    So, are we still trying to say that it is not obvious that Google, FaceBook, Youtube, Twitter and their other co-conspirators are not run by crazed Silicon Valley leftists and manned by equally empty-headed and partisan Millennials? How come these "innocent mistakes" are always made against conservatives? Obama was about as stupid and evil as any president in my lifetime; did he ever come up in searches like this? No? Just coincidence, I suppose?

    Next you will try to tell me that the NYT and WaPo are fair and balanced newspapers...common folks, wake up and smell the coffee...

    There a lot of references all over the web to Trump being an idiot; regardless of if he is or not; a lot of people and places call him an idiot.
    So, if you search for "idiot", then why would be not appear in the results? That just shows you how good the Google algorithm is and it working exactly how it should.
    I see no references anywhere linking/associating the word 'Obama' and 'idiot', so would not expect the algorithm to return him in the search results for 'idiot'. Its not a matter of debating if he was an idiot or not, it about the info available on the web for the algorithm to make the association.

    LOL, the low information voters might buy into the old and stale "it's the algorithms, not us" claptrap that has been Google's first refuge against claims of bias against conservatives for years. Then, of course, when caught red-handed (e.g., have you heard about the very recent Project Veritas hidden camera project that caught a Google executive talking about what they are going to have to do to stop the "next Trump situation"? ) they invariably apologize and blame "rogue employees" or "unauthorized contractors" or whatever other fairy tale is convenient. :rolleyes:

    The good news is that Trump has put a spotlight on the total bias of the social media and search giants, something that the lamestream press has tried to downplay for years (as true co-conspirators are wont to do.) It will be interesting to see how that plays out. It may be time to break up Google and some of these other leftwing, nutcake monopolies.
