The Evolution of Search

If Social Media is the breakthrough development of Web 2.0, what is next in search for Web 3.0 and beyond? Peter Diamandis speculates on the evolution of search in the age of Artificial Intelligence and robotics.

google just got better!

"It’s like power-steering in a car; once you get used to it, you won’t be able to search without it" - Google Search VP Marissa Mayer

She was talking about the newly launched Google Instant.

Here are a few of the core features in Google Instant (From the Google Blog):

  • Dynamic Results - Google dynamically displays relevant search results as you type so you can quickly interact and click through to the web content you need.
  • Predictions - One of the key technologies in Google Instant is that we predict the rest of your query (in light gray text) before you finish typing. See what you need? Stop typing, look down and find what you’re looking for.
  • Scroll to search - Scroll through predictions and see results instantly for each as you arrow down.

If that didn’t make sense, watch this video where Google Instant is explained in more detail:

I think they’ve chosen the perfect song for this!

(This blog gets it’s name from the album that song is on!)
