I’ve been an autocompleter
for Google Search for a couple of years now. But I’ve actually been
at Google since 2006. So I started out, originally,
as a spellchecker. So whenever you misspelled a
word when using Google Search and it said, did you mean, and
then it gave you the right spelling, that was
me typing it out. I’m a really good speller. So this is my console. And letters come in up
here from users– anonymized, of course. And I try to make a prediction
as to what it is that they’re searching for. And I type that back as
quickly as I can. And if I’ve done my job right,
the user sees it, clicks on it, and zoom. Instant results. So on a good day, I average
about 34,000 words per minute. And I go through a new keyboard about every eight days. But we’re Google, right? So whatever it takes to get
results to our users faster, we’re going to do it. Well, my friends and family have
always said, Michael, how is it– and then I finish
their question. Michael, how is it you always
know what we’re going to say? I just say it, and they
just smile, and they’re like, oh, Michael. It’s a real gift. But the real bleeding edge of
technology, like self-driving car kind of stuff, is this
neural scanner that our hardware team cooked up. And you wear this
on your head. There’s no typing. There’s no speaking into a
microphone or anything. You just think the
predictions. And zoom, it’s instantly
displayed in the results. Now right now, I can only get
it to return Princess Leia metal bikini. So that’s clearly a bug. Because I don’t know why
it would do that. Hiring autocompleters
is definitely a challenge for Google. You can’t really get a degree
in autocompletion. When kids ask me what they
should study, I just say, aim for a very broad education. I’ve always been good
with words. I read a lot of books. And movies, I watch
a ton of movies. And music, I know the lyrics
to all the songs. All of them. This year, Google’s
going to hire more people than ever before. And lots of people think that
you need to be some kind of PhD computer science techno math
magician to get a job at Google, but that’s not
always the case. Sometimes we just need people
who can type really fast. And who are also psychic.
