Siri, Brain Implants and Google Killers from SMX East 2012
Many thanks to those of you who made it out for the Meet Siri panel at SMX East yesterday morning, and especially to Third Door Media for inviting me to speak.
The discussion of Google’s designs on one’s brain brought about by Bill Slawski’s excellent presentation reminded me of a quote from Sergey a few years back in which he said that Google wants to be the “third half of your brain”, or one from Eric Schmidt earlier in which they joked about brain implants. It also might not be that far away when you consider that theoretical physicist Dr Michio Kaku described a future in which we move connected objects by thinking about it as happening in the next 100 years in his book Physics of the Future. If you are as fascinated by these concepts as I am, I would highly recommend the book.
If you couldn’t make it to the show, you can at least see my presentation below. For those of you who are still at the show on Day 2, I’ll be speaking on the Knowledge Graph panel later today. Hope to see you there!
