"...The internet has had an enourmous impact on people's lives around the world in the ten years since Google's founding. It has changed politics, entertainment, culture, business, health care, the environment and just about every other topic you can think of. Which got us thinking, what's going to happen in the next ten years? How will this phenomenal technology evolve, how will we adapt, and (more importantly) how will it adapt us?....."
Some more juice on this: "....Thus, computer systems will have greater opportunity to learn from the collective behavior of billions of humans. They will get smarter, gleaning relationships between objects, nuances, intentions, meanings, and other deep conceptual information. Today's Google search uses an early form of this approach, but in the future many more systems will be able to benefit from it."
Now this is real damn interesting stuff - Future of Google or should I say Future of Internet. Saurabh has got some interesting stuff to share here on "Future of Search" too.
What really got me excited was not the word Future which is all around this blog post but the prediction of different set of minds towards one direction i.e. Future of Search linked with Google & Internet par se.
Check out the video from Kevin Kelly from TED Talks.
One suggestion would be to check the comments down below the video.
Though this is the end of the post but the question will still remain: Where are we going? So just to put it in simple words, the best way to predict the future is to invent it, so we will be doing our best to make good on our experts' words every day - Karen Wickre & Alan Eagle, Series Editors of Intelligent Cloud from GoogleBlog.
