Google CEO says China search engine would serve “99% of queries” — and takes a swipe at Baidu
Sundar Pichai reveals more about Dragonfly at Wired 25 conference in San Francisco
Speaking at the Wired 25 conference in San Francisco, Pichai seemed to confirm that. He said Google was committed to its values of freedom of expression and user privacy — but “we also follow the rule of law.”
“We wanted to learn what it would look like if Google was operating in China,” he said. Pichai claimed that Google would be able to serve 99% of search queries in the country.
But Pichai also said that it was still early, and that he’s taking a long-term view.
“We don’t know if we would, or we could. But we wanted to explore.”
