While this topic has been covered, we have not covered it yet. We take our thirty minutes this week to talk about the EU law requiring search engines to remove search results in the “Right to Be Forgotten.”
What’s old is new again. On episode 41 of inThirty we cover Google’s addition of The Knowledge Graph to its search results page. Instead of a chart that depicts the top scorers in Jeopardy as the name implies, Google is trying to use its vast artificial intelligence to figure out what people are really looking for when they search and display that info to them right away, without clicking away from Google. We discuss whether it’s fair game for Google to display the snippets it takes from sites across the web right on the search results page at the expense of click throughs to the sites actually hosting the content or whether we should all just give in and do all of our web browsing as Larry and Sergey intend.
