Maile Ohye, a Developer Programs Tech Lead at Google who is very involved with the search community, presented at State Of Search last night. In her keynote presentation, she said Google is moving from a mobile-first world to a AI-first world.
According to Mark Traphagen of Stone Temple Consulting, she quoted Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google as saying "we're moving from mobile-first world to AI-first world. We want to build a personal Google for every user."
I believe Sundar Pichai said that at Google I/O a few months back. Here is the slide she showed off courtesy of @NTDubb:
Right now, Google is a mobile first search company with the mobile-first index coming and all their talk and action around mobile.
But the future, according to Maile and Sundar is AI. Are you ready?
