The Future of Google and Natural Language Search

Alex Christie

19 December 2007

The MIT Technology Review recently posted an interview with the director of research at Google, Peter Norvig.

Some of the topics touched in this brief interview included:

  • The approach Google take to user testing and research
  • How natural language search has changed in the past 10 years and what Google’s response is to question based queries, such as what Ask are promoting
  • Personalization of search results; with a brief mention of how this is already being implemented on news sites
  • The future of search; the combination of different devices and integration of different types of content

Although short, the interview really gives us some good insight into Google and what direction their products are heading in.
