The tech giant Google has tied up with doctors to give qualified information curated by them to identify disease based on symptoms, said senior vice president Ben Gomes.

Interacting with students of his alma mater St Joseph School here, Gomes responded to a question regarding dealing with inaccuracies on the web in diagnosing diseases.

He said the search engine has information curated by doctors, adding, the curated information of very high quality is obtained from doctors at health care company Mayo Clinic  and other medical bodies in different countries. “People actually get the right sense of the information that they are getting,” Gomes told the students and claimed that Google has done a lot of work on getting the right information.

Starting in 2022, 100 per cent of Made by Google products will include recycled materials with a drive to maximize recycled content wherever possible,” Anna Meegan, Head of Sustainability, Consumer Hardware, wrote in a blog post on Monday.
