Google's New Definition of search

Google’s Schmidt Says Future Of Search Is Autonomous, Personal Fast Search

Andy Beard discovered this on Techmeme pointing to "Google’s Schmidt: Autonomous, Fast Search Is ‘Our New Definition" from a keynote Mr. Schmidt gave at Berlin’s IFA home electronics event (Video).

This keynote is indicative of where Google seems to be heading. This is the second occasion where CEO Eric Schmidt discusses Google's future search plans.

Eric Schmidt KeynotePaidContent.co.uk reported Schmidt also offered some hints and metrics about current and forthcoming products:

  • Google TV: Google TV will call up both free and paid web video, including PPV from DISH Cinema, Google TV product marketing manager Brittany Bohnet demonstrated. Android Market on Google TV is coming early in 2011, she said.
  • Google Music:Think about a music player - if it’s not connected to the internet, it just has what’s stored on it; it can’t get the music nearby, it can’t get the latest music. It has to be on the net. The same is true of everything.”
  • Mobile: One in three queries from smartphones is now around where I am. Our mobile search traffic grew 50 percent in the first half of 2010 - it’s growing much quicker than everything else. Search traffic from Android phones tripled in the first half of 2010.”
  • YouTube: Business is doing very well with more than two billion monetized views a week. The number of monetized views is up 50 percent in the last year.

 

Schmidt also said

Ultimately, search is not just the web but literally all of your information - your email, the things you care about, with your permission - this is personal search, for you and only for you."

He also into how “The next step of search is doing this automatically. When I walk down the street, I want my smartphone to be doing searches constantly - ‘did you know?’, ‘did you know?’, ‘did you know?’, ‘did you know?’. The quote below sums up Schmidt's views best with:

"This notion of autonomous search - to tell me things I didn’t know but am probably interested in, is the next great stage - in my view - of search.

 

The Gypsy's post Dear Google, I am an idiot outlines some other notable quotes from Mr. Schmidt and links to the WSJ where he first mentioned this new Fast Search! So, what do YOU make of this wild and whacky guy?

I think this wild and whacky guy's mouth often outruns his brain.

Keeps Google's public relations staff on their toes, though! :P
