"To do otherwise would go against our core principles and our business interests", said Pichai, testifying for the first time before Congress. Despite the current bear market, Lee still remains bullish about the future of the industry as we move forward into 2019, this is evident by his gleeful tweet about the holiday with the Rockettes.

Weinberg, an MIT graduate, founded DuckDuckGo in 2008 with the intention to offer a perfectly unbiased alternative to Google and other search engines. "Can we explore and serve users in China, in areas like education and health care?"

Sundar Pichai was asked to explain how the company operates in before Congress. Yet the questions about Google's privacy practices, its next big tech bets and its ability to police hate speech only stand to intensify as lawmakers increasingly focus on how Silicon Valley operates, and tech-skeptical Democrats prepare to take the reins in the House of Representatives in 2019.

Pichai said the company had made progress in policing some types of problematic content, but he added, "We are looking to do more".

He continued: "I'm confident we don't approach our work with any political bias". Google is one of the leading AI companies and it utilizes the technology across a range of its projects, ranging from its YouTube subsidiary to its initiatives to respond to natural emergencies. In response, Pichai explained that such a thing was not possible because there are too many steps in the process, but Smith didn't accept Pichai's explanation and dismissed it. "Let me just say, I disagree".
