We Solve For X – Google’s Approach to Find Solutions of Global Problems
Google has proven it time to time that they are not here only to make money. All Google products have a motto to simplify lives in one way or other. This time they have gone a step beyond and come up with We Solve For X. It’s an idea to solve all global problems. They are using what they are best at – Breakthrough Technology and Teamwork.
Solve for X is a place to hear and discuss radical technology ideas for solving global problems. Radical in the sense that the solutions could help billions of people. Radical in the sense that the audaciousness of the proposals makes them sound like science fiction. And radical in the sense that there is some real technology breakthrough on the horizon to give us all hope that these ideas could really be brought to life.
This combination of things – a huge problem to solve, a radical solution for solving it, and the breakthrough technology to make it happen – is the essence of a moonshot.Solve for X is intended to be a forum to encourage and amplify technology-based moonshot thinking and teamwork. This forum started with a small face-to-face event co-hosted by Astro Teller, Megan Smith, and Eric Schmidt – the Solve for X talks are now being posted here on this site. We encourage you to watch the Solve for X talks, join the G+ conversation, and post your own Solve for X talks.
