In a century, where technology has dominated most of the things, Google has established itself as unfathomable ocean of knowledge and information. Almost every single breaking news or past or concurrent event is available on Google. But like every other thing, Google also collects information from sources and those sources are mainly social media or websites.
But the information on Google might be wrong from the source or deliberately edited wrong by someone at times. Recently a false information by google made headlines, when a Google search showed Anushka Sharma as wife of Afghanistan Spinner Rashid Khan.
This blunder from Google surprised many including Rashid himself as Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma is married to Indian captain Virat Kohli and they are one of the loveliest couples in Cricket World. After they got married in December 2017, the lovely couple has been the talk of town for their relationship goals and unmatchable support for each other. They are also expecting a baby by January next year.
On the other hand, Rashid Khan, the 22-year old spinner, is not yet married and this glitch from Google has given fans a reason for trolls and amusement. In a technology dominated era, one doesn’t expect such a glaring mistake from Google.
However, Google also picks data and results by Artificial Intelligence and resurfacing of some old data or news might induce such errors even from Google. Back in 2018, Rashid Khan has named Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma and Preity Zinta as her favourite in an Instagram chat session. That time also Rashid had trended in the news and this might be the reason behind the glitch from Google.
