Billionaire project capitalist Vinod Khosla had an interview with members of Google. The members were Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin. The interview was conducted to discuss the company’s early days, current projects and future activities as the company moves into self-driving cars; healthcare and permanence and connecting the world to the Internet through balloons, satellites and high-speed fiber optics. Many plans of the company were also discussed. Google is very much dependent on the schemes of its co-founders as it has been working on these for quite a lot of time. It has seen development with these schemes and it is expected to see more of the success in the future.
Khosla recalled with Page and Brin about the dismissed sales of goggle to the search engine Excite in 1999. PageRank was the only technology that attracted Excite, which only wanted to pay $350,000 at the time, whereas Google’s co-founders put the company’s worth at $1 million Brin expressed his reaction of the deal saying that was not sure whether the non-searching technology would suit him or not. He was not certain of the deal between the two companies. Google has seen a lot of success mainly because of its expertise in the technology which turns on many ideas for it to decide. When one sector starts to operate, the others automatically start working.
Some dissatisfaction has also been obtained for the company as some projects have not worked out as planned. Similar to Google Now, the “I’m feeling lucky” button in the search engine, projected to skip the search results and go directly to the answer, did not work as planned which gives Google something to think about in the future. Others such as the duet approach cautiously include the heavily controlled health industry, although the company last year launched Calico to focus on extending the span of human life.
Many business men look towards short-term schemes instead of the time wasting long-term schemes. In their discussion of progress and creativities in machine learning and artificial intelligence, Brin indicated to Google X’s self-driving cars that aim to make space and time more efficient. He calls these types of creativities “brain projects,” and explains how the company’s acquisition of DeepMind will one day provide, in theory, fully reasoning artificial intelligence. These plans will give a much better approach to the company’s view in carrying on in the future.
Brin said that the car business will continue and Google will be in it deeply in the next ten years. It will be working with many companies which include manufacturers and service providers. Brin was not sure of the same interior design as of today’s automobiles. Brin hopes that these self-drivers might modernize the transportation with a lot of hurdles including technology and policy. Page discussed that Google faces problems in policy making as worldwide government keeps changing which bring new laws. So Google has to change to meet the requirement. It has been trying it’s best to solve these problems.
