Google isn’t capable of asserting that it is a content-blind intermediary; it can use AI to find and delete private data: Kerala High Court

On Thursday, the Kerala High Court issued a ruling in which it stated that search engines like Google cannot assert that they are merely intermediaries with no influence over the information that appears in search results. (Virginia Shylu vs. Union of India)

The statement was stated in a ruling on the right to be forgotten and how it applies to the publication of court decisions and processes in the absence of special legislation by a division bench of Justices A Muahmed Mustaque and Shoba Annamma Eapen.

Furthermore, it suggested that in the age of artificial intelligence (AI), Google might easily determine the nature of the information and delete it.
