As a former worker on Google’s controversial Dragonfly project, Boyapati firmly disavows that position. A search engine designed for Android devices, Dragonfly not only allows China’s ruling Communist Party to remove any content that it deems sensitive or undesirable, but would boost surveillance capabilities by linking the searches of each user’s to his or her personal phone number. Boyapati left the Dragonfly project after being tasked with writing code that would allow for government censorship of news. He is certainly not alone in his protest. Dragonfly has been widely criticized by leading human rights groups around the world.

Speaking out against these allegations, Google CEO Sundar Pichai insists that the company has no intention of contributing to censorship in China. In fact, he contends that Google is not even “close to launching a search product” for the Chinese market.

Is Pichai leading Google down a dark road in China or is Boyapati off the mark with his criticsims? Chime in with your opinion on Micgoat.
