Google to radically change homepage for first time since 1996

The Guardian

While most of the new features are iterative, with some form of them available in the Google search apps already, the addition of the Google feed to the main desktop sites will mark one of the biggest changes to Google's approach to search. But iGoogle was only shown to those who were logged in and had selected to use iGoogle, rather than the default simple search box Google homepage. How it will look and work on the desktop and whether it will include the search company's voice assistant Google Assistant is not yet known. The mobile feed also contains things such as boarding passes and calendar events based on things taken from Gmail and Google calendar.


EU judges will decide Google's battle with France's CNIL

Daily Mail

EU judges will have to decide whether Alphabet's Google has to remove certain web search results globally to comply with a previous privacy ruling after France's supreme administrative court referred the issue to the top EU court. Google has gone head to head with CNIL, the French data protection authority, over the territorial scope of the so-called'right to be forgotten', which requires the world's biggest search engine to remove inadequate or irrelevant information from web results under searches for people's names. Google (file pic) is battling French data protection authorities over the'right to be forgotten', which requires the tech giant to remove certain information from searches for people's names The tech giant has argued that a balance should be found between the right to privacy and freedom of expression, saying that such removals should not go beyond Europe and into countries with different laws on the subject. The dispute arose after the ECJ ruled in 2014 that search engines such as Google and Microsoft's Bing comply with the'right to be forgotten'.


Google's New Feeds Show You the Internet You Want to See

WIRED

Google's search box may be the internet's most powerful tool. On Tuesday, at a presentation for a room full of reporters, a trio of Google employees were careful to frame the feeds as another way to display search results, rather than a new product. The company uses the same data it parses in the search engine, and using many of the same features--like its new fact-check markup for news stories--that inform the way you see search results now. Now, with products like Google Assistant and features like the new feeds, the search engine hopes to flip the script a little.

Machine Learning Is Transforming Data Security

#artificialintelligence

This CISO has done a very good job of implementing master data management systems and processes to ensure their data is safe, accurate, and available. My suggestion to this CISO was to spend some time investigating the use of AI-based machine learning approaches to data security. In addition, machine learning systems can help IT professionals better locate and manage their sensitive data, recommend remediation efforts and actions, and gain a better understanding of who is accessing and using data across the organization. The CISO I spoke with is currently trialing an approach that uses machine learning security monitoring system for both his IT systems and his various data stores.
