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.
