"What is Bitcoin" Amongst Google's Top Searched Questions

Bitcoin is currently trading between $3130 and $3150 which is the lowest range hat bitcoin has reached from the past 16 months

More specifically, the link between searching the word "idiot" on Google Images and the current USA president - Donald Trump.

Every year, Google Trends publishes its "Year in Search" to highlight the past year's most popular Google searches.

Lofgren posed the question to Google CEO Sundar Pichai during a congressional hearing on Tuesday about potential bias among the website's searches.

If you type in "Idiot" on Google you would see the images of Trump come up.

"I know Google's attitude". Privacy, of course, is also a huge issue for Facebook, which has spent almost a year trying to recover from the Cambridge Analytica data mining scandal.

Mr Pichai explained how it isn't Google who manually categorises pages and images.

This past year we also searched a lot of "how to " questions. In addition to explaining how Google search algorithms minimize bias, Pichai "denied any political bias within the company, and maintained that no individuals have direct influence over search results", DiClemente wrote.

The stakes could rise dramatically if Google re-enters China, where the company shut down its Chinese-language search engine in 2010 over security and censorship concerns. The reason these hearings are a waste of time, he said, is that the First Amendment of the Constitution protects the free speech rights of people and corporations, which would include search results.

Trump and some lawmakers have raised the possibility of asking regulators to investigate whether Google -which handles almost two of every three online searches in the US - has abused its clout as a major gateway to the internet to stifle competition. To give you an idea, the word "idiot" has been searched for more than one million times, following Sundar Pichai, Google CEO testimony.

"I do think we've definitely gotten better at areas where you're better able to clearly define policies, where there's less subjectivity", said Pichai, pointing to YouTube, where the company's machine-learning tools have been put to use to spot and take down terrorist content.

"It's nearly getting to the point where they are allowing it or even condoning it".

Mr Pichai replied that equally negative news was highlighted when people used the search term "Google". "There are a number of factors that can lead to slight differences, including time and location, which this study doesn't appear to have controlled for effectively", said a Google spokesperson.
