Google has been an integral part of my life since 1998. Life would be harder without them.
Google - Name - History - About
Google LLC (limited liability company) has become more than just a search engine and advertising company. They are now one of the biggest companies in the world.
When Larry Page, CEO of Google, was a graduate student at Stanford University, he had a vision in his sleep that he could download the entire Web. When he awoke, he wrote down what became the basis for an algorithm. He used this algorithm to power a new Web search engine.
Page and fellow student and friend, Sergey Brin, then created a search engine named 'BackRub' and needed a new name. After lots of thinking, they went with Google — a play on the word 'googol', the mathematical number 1 followed by 100 zeros.
They rented a garage to be their office from Susan Wojcicki, who became Google’s first marketing manager, and is now the chief executive of Google's, YouTube website.
They are always experimenting, researching, and developing new software, hardware and gadgets to help big and small businesses grow and make life easier for everyone globally, on and offline. They are also making substantial contributions to fighting global warming.
Google's parent company, 'Alphabet', is financing 'Kitty Hawk', a company developing and testing 'Cora', an electric, autonomous flying taxi. Google also owns 'Boston Dynamics', which builds robots for the US military.
Google has its fingers in all the pies. From machine learning, artificial intelligence and quantum computing — to cloud computing, virtual reality, smartphones, smartwatches, laptops, smart-home devices and self-driving cars — to experimenting with holographic glasses and smart tattoos that will allow us to use our body as a living touchpad.
Google is also working with Neuralink, a company Co-founded in 2016 by Elon Musk, Max Hodak and Paul Merolla, and are working on "breakthrough technology for the brain" to develop high-bandwidth brain implants that can communicate with phones and computers..
Google’s mission. "To organise the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful for everyone".
