When you think of Google, what comes to mind? Probably something along the lines of search engines, online data storage, or even Android OS. But what you may not know is that under the leadership of CEO and President, Kiran Pichai, Google has been working on a new project: self-driving cars. This new era for Google is going to have a profound impact not just on the tech industry, but on transportation as a whole. The future of Google is already looking very bright. In this blog post, we will explore how Kiran Pichai is leading Google into this new era and why you should keep an eye on them.
Kiran Pichai’s Early Life
Kiran Pichai was born on November 14, 1969, in the town of Rishikesh, in the Indian state of Uttarakhand. After completing his undergraduate studies at the University of California, Berkeley, he worked as a software engineer and product manager at companies including Microsoft and Yahoo! before joining Google in 2004. As head of Google Cloud Platform and CEO of Google parent company Alphabet Inc., Pichai has been instrumental in shaping the company into one of the world’s leading technology firms. Under his leadership, Google has expanded into artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and cloud computing, while also establishing itself as a major player in mobile advertising.
How Kiran Became CEO of Google
Google’s CEO Kiran Pichai has been leading the company into a new era since he was appointed in early 2015. Here’s what you need to know about him:
Pichai was born in Hyderabad, India, in 1967. He earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Berkeley, and his master’s degree from Stanford University. He began his career as a software engineer at Sun Microsystems before moving to Google in 2002.
During Pichai’s time at Google, the company has undergone major changes. In April 2015, he was appointed CEO of Google after Larry Page stepped down due to health concerns. Under Pichai’s leadership, Google has made several changes including:
1) Launching YouTube TV in 2017 as an exclusive streaming service for live and on-demand content from top networks such as ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, and Disney/ABC Family;
2) Acquiring DeepMind Technologies in 2014 for $500 million;
3) Expanding its advertising capabilities with the launch of its first product called “AdWords” in 2000; and 4) Developing its own autonomous vehicle technology called Waymo which is now owned by Alphabet Inc.
Google’s Plans for the Future
Google is a technology giant with ambitions that go well beyond simply search engine dominance. In recent years, the company has made a concerted effort to expand its reach into other areas of online activity, including artificial intelligence and machine learning.
In 2017, Google announced its intent to build a search engine for the world’s knowledge. The project, code-named “Knight,” is designed to index all forms of information and make it easily accessible. At its annual conference last month, Pichai unveiled another ambitious undertaking: Google Duplex, an AI system that can convincingly carry on human conversations.
Pichai’s goal is nothing short of transforming Google into an omnipresent digital platform that can do everything from manage our finances to recommend restaurants. With so much on the line, it’s no surprise that Pichai is constantly pushing the envelope. Here are some of his most noteworthy innovations:
-Project Titan: In 2014, Pichai unveiled Project Titan—a secret initiative focused on developing advanced artificial intelligence technologies. The project was eventually codenamed “Dragonfly” and was instrumental in bringing DeepMind’s AlphaGo AI system to market two years later.
-Google Photos: Introduced in 2013, Google Photos automatically organizes your photos and makes them available for offline viewing and sharing. It also offers features like face recognition and automatic photo editing options.
-Google Assistant: One of the major selling points of Google Home devices is their ability to interact with Google
The Biggest Changes at Google under Kiran Pichai
Kiran Pichai is the new CEO of Google, and he has big plans for the company. One of his biggest priorities is to make Google more user-friendly and relevant, which means making changes across the board. Here are some of the most important changes under Pichai:
1. Changes to Search Results
Under Pichai, Google is making a big change to how search results are displayed. Previously, results were based on the content of your website (which was probably hosted by Google), but now they’re based on what users are searching for online. This means that your website won’t have as much of an impact on your search engine rankings anymore – which could be a good or bad thing, depending on how you look at it.
2. More Personalized Searches
Another goal of Pichai’s is to make online searches more personalizable. So, instead of just showing you results from websites that you’ve already visited, Google will show you results from websites that match your interests and preferences. This makes it easier for you to find what you’re looking for – whether that’s information about a particular topic or products that match your needs.
3. Changes To Ads & Sponsored Links
Pichai is also making changes to ads and sponsored links – one of Google’s main sources of income. Currently, ads are targeted based on keywords that appear in a user’s search query (for example, “car
The Future of Google
Google is often thought of as a technology company, but under CEO Kiran Pichai, the company is expanding its reach into other areas, like artificial intelligence (AI) and augmented reality (AR). In recent years, Google has made large investments in both AI and AR.
Pichai has been outspoken about his belief that AI could have a huge impact on society, and he’s been working to make sure Google is at the forefront of this trend. In April 2017, Pichai announced that Google was founding an artificial intelligence research lab called “Jigsaw” which would focus on ethical implications of AI.
Google also invests heavily in AR. In July 2017, it acquired British startup Niantic for $2 billion, which will help it bring its augmented reality platform to more devices. AR is expected to become a major industry over the next few years, and Google is positioned to be one of the leading companies in this field.
