In Defense Of Google, Really – It’s The Algorithmic Bias, Stupid

By now every one knows about Google’s Search Engine BIAS when it comes to Hillary’s Clinton Crimes, but this bias is not the bias that you expect.

Algorithms Biases are not expressed in forms of “I like Hillary” or “I don’t like Hillary”, although this might be the case, who knows, but it is not THE BIAS.

It is a bias related to how we write and optimize code or use data.

The Search Algorithms biases are there to ensure optimum performance, maximum user satisfaction, relevance, truthfulness and more, as decided by developers and/or AI.

Let’s take the case of “Hillary Clinton cr…” autocomplete.

  • First, how is it implemented?
    • YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO DEMAND A PRIVATE BUSINESS THESE DETAILS
  • What is it optimizing?
    • It could optimize that the whole autocomplete index fits in memory
    • It could just show top 5 most used searches of last month for each prefix
    • It could apply a quality score and a count for each suffix
    • It could sort on a function of quality/score + quantity of sufixes
    • It could add to score the score of the top 10 results
    • It could add to score the trustfulness of top 10 results
    • It could prune longer sequences because shorter ones already exists (e.g. Drop Hillary Clinton Crimes, because Hillary Crimes is same, better and shorter)
    • It could drop terms deemed problematic
    • It could replace terms with synonyms
    • It could perform any dark magic to prune the list of autocompletes or reorder them to maximize something
    • YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO DEMAND A PRIVATE BUSINESS THESE DETAILS
  • What data it uses?
    • Could use searched data, in past 1 hour, 1 month, or 1 year
    • It could filter out the last hour to prevent manipulation
    • It could combine search data with data found in web pages
    • YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO DEMAND A PRIVATE BUSINESS THESE DETAILS

The algorithm has Biases, it discriminates between old data and new data, long sequences and shorter sequences, term used in quality pages or spammy pages, number of times a term it is searched, and much more. It biases between Autocomplete A and B based on complex formulas. And it is NONE OF YOUR DAMN BUSINESS WHY!

You assumed that Google’s Autocomplete shows what People Are Searching For, just like conservatives assumed of Facebook that Trending matches what People Search For. WRONG!

If you DON’T LIKE HOW GOOGLE IMPLEMENTED AUTOCOMPLETE, GO AND USE YAHOO AND BING.

YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO DEMAND A PRIVATE BUSINESS TO CHANGE HOW ITS SERVICES WORK!

IT’S THE ALGORITHMIC BIAS, STUPID!
