Join John, Google’s Chief of Search and AI, and Akshaya, from Microsoft Bing, to find out how search really works. They cover everything from how special programs called “spiders” scan the Internet before you even type in your search terms to what determines which search results show up first. Find out how search algorithms bust spammers, manage location services and even use machine learning to make search better every year.

lol, google's infamous algorithm to determine which page to show you first: check if they have paid for a higher spot than the other results. And bing? Bing's search algorithm is to take google's results and show them in their css. You can prove this by doing an image search for "american inventors"- some months ago, google, to appear "more diverse", altered image results for this particular query to show only "black american inventors". being black, means you are diverse. so there is no need to show you east asian, south east asian, middle eastern, native american, or white inventors… Read more »
