Solve for X


Recently Google launch a site called Solve for X. Similar to TED conferences objectives, all in the name of making the world a better place. Solve for X a place where the curious can go to hear, encourage problem solving, teamwork and discuss radical technology ideas for solving global problems.

The project is believed to be linked to Google X, the company’s top-secret lab dedicated to “shoot-for-the-stars” type ideas, such as driverless cars, web-connected appliances, and even space elevators.

The labs are reportedly run “as mysteriously as the C.I.A.,” according to unnamed sources familiar with the project, and housed in two facilities — one in California at the company’s headquarters and one in an undisclosed location elsewhere in the country.

“They’re pretty far out in front right now,” Rodney Brooks, a professor emeritus at M.I.T.’s computer science and artificial intelligence lab and founder of Heartland Robotics, told the Times. “But Google’s not an ordinary company, so almost nothing applies.”



I’m an Interactive Developer from Singapore and this is my daily dose of Inspiration, Interaction, Design, Art, Installation and Advertising. Despite being a developer, I doesn't conform myself to just programming. Love to get myself involved in brainstorming and sharing sessions. It helps me to see things in different perspective, broaden my knowledge and of course, satisfy my hunger for awesomeness!

Got something to say? Go for it!
