Google: Star Trek Is The Destiny Of Search
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.
