The algorithm is banned in China

This is an image I took yesterday of a billboard “The algorithm is banned in China.”. I don’t get it. This one has “Ask” in the bottom of the image.

I remember a few months ago seeing “The algorithm killed Jeeves”, and it had no reference to “Ask” on it, so I assumed it was some reference to Google Killing Need to find that photo.

Found it. I took this photo below on Apr 20, 2007. Note: there is no Ask logo like the one above.
