Krishna Bharat (born 7 January 1970)[1] is an Indian research scientist formerly at Google Inc, and leads a team developing Google's news product. Among other projects, he opened the Research and Development center at Bangalore, India.[2] He is the creator of Google News, a service that automatically indexes over 25,000 news websites in more than 25 languages to provide a summary of the News resources.[3]

Krishna Bharat created Google News in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks to keep himself abreast of the developments.[4][5][6] Since then, it has been a popular offering from Google's services. Google News was one of Google's first endeavors beyond offering just plain text searches on its page.

Bharat grew up in Bangalore, now an IT hub in Hilltop algorithm.[8][9] At Google he developed so-called LocalRank,[10] which can be considered to be an adaptation of Hilltop.

In 2015, Krishna received the Distinguished alumnus award from his alma mater IIT Madras.[11]
