Google is moving to Australia?

The tech giant will construct an elaborate research hub, ramp up its cloud computing capacity and work with Aussie government scientists to tackle issues such as expanding the use of green energy.

The remarkable reversal of fortune follows a bruising battle over whether Google should compensate local media for news on its platform — and demonstrates a potential path forward for a company battling regulators in multiple global markets.
