Google’s mysterious ‘Solve for X’ launching today? (video)
Could today be the day when Google reveals the secrecy surrounding Google’s mysterious X lab? Hopefully today we might find out what Google X is all about.
Solve for X official website says:
Solve for X is a place where the curious can go to hear and discuss radical technology ideas for solving global problems. Radical in the sense that the solutions could help billions of people. Radical in the sense that the audaciousness of the proposals makes them sound like science fiction. And radical in the sense that there is some real technology breakthrough on the horizon to give us all hope that these ideas could really be brought to life.
This combination of things – a huge problem to solve, a radical solution for solving it, and the breakthrough technology to make it happen – is the essence of a moonshot.
Solve for X is intended to be a forum to encourage and amplify technology-based moonshot thinking and teamwork.
We can’t wait to share what we discover.
Richard DeVaul, Google’s Rapid Evaluator tweeted that he is attending the “solve for x” conference that is already going on right now.
Attending a fascinating, invite-only gathering of global innovators called “solve for x.” Big challenges, radical innovations, and real opportunities to make the world a better place.
The conference is driven by short, technology rich presentations on topics ranging from low-energy, low-cost water desalinization to stretchable silicon biosensors. This stuff is real.
I and other attendees have been tweeting under the #solveforx tag. Check it out.
