Google has introduced a new set of rules for how it will treat users of its search engine.
The search giant is using an algorithm to detect bias against people from different races, ethnicities, genders and religions and is also introducing a new feature for people who identify as LGBTQI or nonbinary to help them find the content they’re looking for.
The new rules were revealed to the BBC and were also revealed in an article on the company’s website.
Google is introducing new rules to help ensure that users can identify bias in the way it treats them, as part of a review into how the internet works, said the article.
The rules were announced in the company ‘s quarterly results for the quarter ended March 31, with Google CEO Sundar Pichai saying it will “reduce the number of people we have to work with to prevent them from getting biased reviews, comments and recommendations.”
Pichai said Google will use a new algorithm to identify bias against groups, including people from a minority group or those who are in the LGBTQI community.
“In the future, we’ll be able to make it easier for people to identify where they’re at and what they’re doing in certain spaces and how they might be impacted,” he said.
“It’s part of the effort to make sure that we’re not disadvantaging groups of people.”
The changes are designed to help Google improve its ability to deal with reviews and recommendations, which can be problematic because reviews are often biased in favour of a particular company or product.
This means that it will no longer allow people to post negative reviews on Google, even if they’ve previously received a positive review.
Google also said it will introduce a system to help people find out when someone is sharing content with them that has been shared by others without their permission.
“We are going to introduce a way for people that want to share content with people who don’t want them to be able, so that they can see what they are doing, to have it blocked if they share it without their consent,” Pichie said.
