Google boss Sundar Pichai warns of threats to internet freedom


Many nations, he claims, restrict information flow, and the model is generally taken for granted. Pichai also tackles concerns around tax, privacy, and data in an in-depth interview with the BBC. He is the ultimate leader of firms or products as diverse as Waze, FitBit, and DeepMind, the artificial intelligence pioneers, as he is the CEO of both Google and its parent company Alphabet. Gmail, Google Chrome, Google Maps, Google Earth, Google Docs, Google Photos, the Android operating system, and many more Google products are within his purview. Two additional breakthroughs, according to Pichai, will further revolutionise our world over the next quarter-century: artificial intelligence and quantum computing. Pichai emphasised the importance of AI in the midst of the rustling leaves and brightness of Google's enormous, vacant campus in Silicon Valley. He described it as "the most significant technology that humanity will ever build and work on." "It's like that if you think of fire, electricity, or the internet. But I believe it is far more deep."
