Recently, Charlie Rose interviewed co-founder and CEO of Google, Larry Page at the TED 2014 conference. In the interview, Page talks about subjects ranging from aerial bikeways and internet balloons, to his long-term vision for Google.
He also shares his thoughts on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how he believes that we need revolutionary change instead of incremental change in technology. Since his interview followed one between Rose and Edward Snowden, he also spoke about the NSA and how security was very important to both himself and the company.
For the most part, a large number of people are quite leery of and rightfully so, giving companies such as Google their personal data. For many, it’s not just because of potential identity theft and the standard credit fraud, but reports also suggest that quite a lot, simply have an aversion to sharing their personal data with anyone, let alone companies. He points out to Rose, that there is also a lot of good that can come from sharing.
Page’s ideas on the future of computing were also interesting. All in all, it was an easy listen for around 20 minutes or so and while not giving an exact blueprint of course, it was a reasonable indication of his future plans and vision for Google.
