Video: Google’s Craig Silverstein Speaks at UNC
I went to hear Craig Silverstein speak at UNC’s medical library on October 30th, a week ago, thanks to Davak at tech-recipes.
I remember especially enjoying section four below on Mobile Search and Google Co-op.
This is over 30 minutes of movie, so if you happen to watch it all please indicate in which video you found particular value…
In part one he introduces himself and discusses Google’s origins.
In part 2 here Craig continues to discuss how Google started and then introduces Google Book search. He’s presenting to librarians afterall.
In part 3 he finishes explaining how Google Books can’t actually achieve its goal of digitizing all books and then introduces Google Scholar to the audience.
In part four Craig digs into the future of the web, which Google sees as mobile, and Google Co-op as a future of enabling search results to get smarter.
In part 5 he recounts Larry Page’s favorite early Google anecdote and the bids everyone farewell.
Davak provides his take on Silverstein’s lecture here.
