Breakfast with Google’s Search Team

 
 

When Amit Singhal was a kid he watched Star Trek and dreamed of having a computer with all the answers…

Googlers talk about the future of search, information retrieval and human-computer interaction. 

Amit suggests that questions “Where is search going?” and ” What is the future of search?” already have answers and most people who ask, already know it and simply want to verify that Google is up to make it happen. To reach the ‘futuristic search’ everyone dreams of, all human knowledge must be accumulated in a single place. Amit highlights the web as the biggest repository of human knowledge. Understanding the “knowledge” is a major challenge, gradually solved by Google’s knowledge graph.

  • Sashi Takur (Technical Lead, Knowledge Graph) offers a demo of what the new advanced search involves – mapping and understanding objects in a more meaningful ways not just as mere keywords.
  • Jack Menzel (Director of Product Management, Knowledge Graph) further demonstrates the knowledge carousel and a more interactive access to knowledge with some interesting interface solutions.
  • Sagar Kamdar (Director of Product Management, Universal Search) showcases Gmail integration and universal search (e.g. flights).
  • Scott Huffman (Engineering Director, Mobile) talks about his perfect computer capable of interacting with users in a natural way (natural language processing) featuring Google’s iPhone / iPad app.
