Chief Executive of Google, Sundar Pichai said that the internet giant drives clear of “political bias”, contending that this is a core strategy of its business to sustain the trust of the users.
Pichai also said security and privacy are vital parts of Google’s mission, and in that issue, the company is devoted to working with the US government “ to keep our country safe and secure”.
The planned remarks published a day ahead of the appearance of Pichai at the House Judiciary Committee, come with Google under fire on the multiple fronts, on issues around political bias, data security and the domination on the internet search.
Pichai boldly refused the statement by US President Donald Trump and his supporters earlier this year that Google controls with a political agenda that represses the conservative voices.
He also told, “ Users also look to us to provide accurate, trusted information. We work hard to ensure the integrity of our products, and we’ve put a number of checks and balances in place to ensure they continue to live up to our standards.”
Pichai informed Google strives to offer “platforms for diverse perspectives and opinions ” without boosting its own agenda.
He said, “I lead this company without political bias and work to ensure that our products continue to operate that way. To do otherwise would go against our core principles and our business interests ”.
Pichai said that Google – which earlier rushed the shutdown of its Google+ social network after a second data security problem was located – assists federal privacy regulations, without offering particulars.
He said, “ Protecting the privacy and security of our users have long been an essential part of our mission”.
