If google grows and spreads it's web as fast as it's doing now, what state will it be 25 years from now ? How will it affect our machine dependent, web-centric life in future? I was thinking about it and these are what my small imaginative mind could picture google at 2030 AD....
Brain of World's Largest Reactive Super Computer/Robot : Google with its vast and immense store of data and knowledge can be fed into the brain of a super-computer to find and ask any answer for a question. It would be a improved version of www.AskJeevs.com . Used the "Reactive" word because I feel super computers can be categorized into 2 kinds. "Reactive" and "Proactive". Reactive being the lower generation super computers which can give you answers to your questions or react to a situation previously programmed. Proactive Super Computers are far more intelligent enough to assess a situation and react accordingly without waiting for some input or intervention.
Platform to Access Anytime, Anywhere ,Any favorite Entertainment Program : Google will extend the Google Video to a level that all the movies, television serials will be available in the net. You would be able to search , select and view any movie of your choice or any episode of your favorite television soaps anywhere , anytime. Obviously you will have to pay for it , and producers will be paid their copyright through Google.
World Wide Tracking:
How about taking snaps of every meter of our earth every minute(I would love it to be every second ). Think of what all you can do with that data ? Reduce Crime? Find Lost Child in a Fair? Track path of every movable object and life on earth.. Yes the camera can only take pictures where its allowed, only in public places, you can use it to track anything happening in ur private places too... You guessed it right ,it will be an extension of the much loved , appreciated and controversial software "Google Earth".
There are lot of other fields also, like personal treatment based upon your genes, which Google has already started investing. Its all about sharing knowledge , and correct knowledge. Opening up the world and making it one global public arena to share information.
All these and much more... Only if it sustains the fast growing competitive market for next 25 years. Who knows it can be swallowed by big companies like Microsoft. Which I really don't believe will happen. If google is destroyed , it will only be destroyed by Itself.......
