Ben Gomez leaves Search for Education

Ben Gomes was previously responsible for Information Search. Currently, Education and Training will be under his leadership. These are the following sections: Education, Scholar, Arts & Culture. Today's events, quarantine and the outbreak of the epidemic, forced to make adjustments in life. Almost all countries of the world have switched to distance learning. This forced the Corporation to change its priorities and put Education first. However, Gomez has not completely said goodbye to his previous duties, so he remains a technical search advisor.

Search&Assistant options will be headed by Prabhakar Raghavan

In place of Ben Gomes, Prabhakar Raghavan will now lead Search and Assist. He is an expert in this field, so since 1995 he has been dealing with this issue at IBM. For some time he taught a computer science course on search at Stanford. Later, he founded a research laboratory at Yahoo, where he put forward his theory of the "web of things and objects". He has been working for the Company since 2012. His area of responsibility was location determination on mobile phones, with 2018 Apps (Gmail, Docs, Drive, Calendar).
