Google has released a new video called “Breakfast with Google’s Search Team,” in which VP, Search, Amit Singhal talks about the future of search.

“The destiny of search is to become that Star Trek computer,” he says, bringing up a familiar (at this point) reference.

Other Google engineers talk about things like the Knowledge Graph, Gmail in personal results and improved speech recognition.

In the video, Singhal also drops stats about how Google has found over 30 trillion unique URLs on the web (vs. 1 trillion in 2008), and how Google crawls over 20 billion pages on a typical day.

    Please, get a grip on reality! (The dumb-ass 0bama Admin. is of this same mind-set.) Star-Trek is/was a fantasy television program which had some movie off-shoots. True, Gene Roddenberry was brilliant and logical in his insight and futuristic thinking. His Federation was our world minus its’ reality. The reality of our world, the sociopaths and psychopaths and drunks and druggies and lay-abouts and all the human debris that seems to be mushrooming he made into the other world baddies, like the Klingons and Ferengi, etc. Well, unless you’re going to start the “killing fields” it ain’t happening. Besides the computers were heading toward the Star-Trek tv model anyway … it’s what comes from that that we should be concerned about and thinking about … like, it might be something from Alice In Wonderland.

    I want the Star Trek computer myself, and who better to make it happen then Google? I don’t see anyone else out there trying to bring technology to the masses like Google does. It will take bright minds and money, who else but an Indian techie to lead it? Sorry, Bill Gates sometimes you have to give to receive.
