Google’s Sundar Pichai’s Testimony

Irina Raicu, director of Internet Ethics, quoted in The Mercury News.

"'People really need to understand the privacy implications about things like location privacy, or intellectual privacy — when people feel their searches are being analyzed or collected,' said Irina Raicu, director of the Internet Ethics program at the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University. But she said that’s not what the public is getting from the overly partisan hearings, which she says include lawmakers citing studies or reports about bias that have been debunked.

"'The hearings themselves become a sort of misinformation,' Raicu said."
