Google introduces new search tools to try to read our minds
Google keeps trying to read our minds.
The company revealed some new search tools Wednesday at I/O, its annual developers conference in San Francisco. Taken together, they are another step toward Google's trying to become the omnipotent, human-like " Star trek" search engine that its executives say they want it to be.
When people ask Google certain questions, it will now try to predict the person's follow-up questions and answer them, too. Ask for the population of India, for instance, and you will also get the population of China and the United States, because Google knows those are the most common follow-up questions.
