The future of search

Alex Christie

Ten
Search experts over at Google will over the next three weeks be sharing their knowledge on how they see
search evolving in future.
In
the first blog posts on the Future of
Search
Marissa Mayer, vice president of search products and user experience
at Google, mentions that search should be available to everyone no matter the
user’s location and respond to more than just keywords.

Mayer also added that “Search
still isn’t accessible or easy enough. In the next 10 years, we will see
radical advances in modes of search. These include mobile devices offering us
easier search, internet capabilities deployed in more devices, and different
ways of entering and expressing queries by voice, natural language, picture or
song, to name just a few.”
Mayer
said that in order to provide more intelligent results, search needs to
understand more about the user’s location and contacts.

She also added "Maybe
the search engines of the future will know where you are located, maybe they
will know what you know already or what you learned earlier today, or maybe
they will fully understand your preferences because you have chosen to share
that information with us."

Finally she expressed the need to increase Google’s
translation services so that the entire web is available to everyone all of the
time regardless of dialect.
