The Future From Larry Page | Zeitgeist 2012
It has been a year since Larry Page reassumed his post as CEO. Dawning the exciting Google Goggles (still in testing phase) at the Zeitgeist Conference, Larry talks about the future and what that means for Google. Google is known for creating innovative products. Yet all their products have not been met with the same reception as others. As a result of that, Google has had to revamp and consolidate over 30 different products. Pivoting has been a key strategy employed.
Larry continues to talk about Google’s key areas of focus, which include: (1) Google Plus: It isn’t just about being social, its about sharing. In a split second, using Google Goggles, Larry shared a photo of all the audience members with his company, which was created as a group in ‘Circles’. (2) Search: Search has been optimized where it is no longer based on a series or array of letters, but rather linked to individuals, events and data packets. Additionally, action based search now enables us to book flights, get directions etc within the Google domain.
