6:13 pm
internet censorship in fact that's why it pulled out of china back in two thousand and ten at the time google's co-founder said the following are objection is to those forces of totalitarianism our hope is their progress and a more open internet in china well times have changed and eight years later google is reportedly secretly planning its return a new report from the investigative website the answers sept says that the tech giant has a team secretly working on a new censorship version of its search engine for china well earlier i spoke to the author of that report the intercepts ryan gallagher began by asking him what he discovered about project dragon-fly google's secret effort to get back to china. yeah well basically dragon-fly is the project name for. an under
6:14 pm
that google has developed for smartphone users in china the idea is that it will get them access to a censored berrigan of google that is compliant with the really in communist party regimes censorship controls over information that people can access on the internet in china and google is trying to get back into china. using the censored up that people will be able to access once it's launched and at the moment it's applying. the google idea was to have it ready between the next six to nine months to watch but we'll see what happens and the story that we published yesterday made us through a spanner in the works so we'll have to see how it develops. china would of course be a massive market for google bence's elim has that side of the story sara sadly anyone who has used google before at some stage without even realizing it in many
6:15 pm
cases it's the best known face of one of the world's biggest companies alphabet which has a market cap of a seven hundred thirty billion dollars together that you posted revenues of two hundred twenty billion last year and google is not only about search engines anymore it's also mapping the entire world providing half the world's smartphones with android operating systems and even researching the transport systems of the future but the chinese market offers astronomical revenues and google wants to get back in challenging the likes of home grown by do is fell by seven point seven percent on the reports. let's talk about the reports with theresa looking for news web site motherboard germany for is good to see you again how legit all the reports first of all they are pretty legit first of all the intercept broke the story and they refer to one whistleblower and leaked documents and later on those reports were confirmed by report new york times citing two sources familiar with google.
6:16 pm
google employees and google itself has kind of dance around the topic a little bit by saying they don't comment on speculations but they have already made efforts to break into the chinese market in sundar pichai is also known as someone who wants to re enter the world's largest internet market we're talking about seven hundred seventy two million internet users i guess that's tempting but does google really need to i think they do because in china there are companies that are way more successful in binding. basically every part of uses life into one app like we chat they have government approved mini app. within that they do everything from micro payments to virtual i.d.'s to social networking to communications but politicians and also by do the search and giant in china has
6:17 pm
a big part in that so yes they want to definitely into that but if the chinese can already do all of that today google well it depends what what google stands for and this is the exact the exact question if google is just as one employee criticized today turning into a censorship machine in china they might not because then they can already be used by do the other problem is that even if google is not censoring or would be not censoring particular search terms china with its great firewall is already employing a service by cisco that prevents the forwarding of search results so even if they results would be displayed the page you would click on would be turned up like just briefly i also read on line one comment that even a new to version of google would still work better than by do well it could be if it depends on how how extensive these censorship efforts are but for sure they are big they're big shift from search of brand new also has had experience of such
6:18 pm
you've been the google founder who has that experience with told terry newsom and that is why he opted out to in two thousand and ten after four years of killing and censorship by the chinese government and google's not afraid of getting split up at some stage i mean if it continues to pose the ready an octopus you could say in the corporate world it has its finger in every pile and then entering such a huge market i mean it would be globally don't with it yeah that is true i do think that they'd still listen to their employees use or that is to be hoped at least with google maven we've seen that in some steps they were taking were met with a lot of chris's criticism and it still being the octopus that it is it still has its code of conduct the line don't be evil if you see something evil hear something evil speak up so it is to be hoped the employees do exactly that reason look i thank you very much for coming in and i can thank you. donald trump has been
