Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)’s Google Outlines A Future Where Devices Won’t Matter To Shareholders
Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)’s Google is working toward a future where emphasis on devices will be reduced as artificial intelligence (AI) takes the center stage. In the recent annual shareholder letter, Google’s CEO, Sundar Pichai, talked about a future of Internet search that is vastly different than what is there today.
Reading Pichai’s letter to shareholders leaves you with the impression that Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)’s Google wants to be an AI-first company. Think about AI being tapped to solve people’s daily tasks and also helping with solving serious challenges such as combating climate change and diagnosing and treating debilitating diseases such as cancer.
Google’s comment on AI being used to help tackle climate change comes just a few weeks after the world signed the historic Paris climate agreement that commits nations and corporations to take stronger actions to reduce environment degradation.
Less of device, more of AI
According to Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)’s Google, Search will remain its core business even in the future. However, the company expects its Search business to evolve or more accurately, improve. For example, the way Google delivers Search results today is vastly differently from how it did it in 1998 when it started out. Evolution of Search is expected to continue and in the future everything will boil down to AI instead of device.
While Google doesn’t mean that there will be no devices in the future, what it does say is that people won’t notice them. That will come as a result of people putting less emphasis on the devices they use to do Internet Search but more on how that Search is delivered to them.
Everyone talking about AI
Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)’s Google is not the only dreaming about AI defining the future of technology. Other technology companies such as Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB), Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) are actively investing in AI.
