Google’s Marissa Meyer made a post to clarify her statement at Official Google Blog entitled, the “Future of Search”:
“….search as we know it today will tremendously change over the next ten years. These changes will have something to do with personalization, localization, socialization and “multi-lingualization.” In essence the future of search according to Ms. Meyer is something which will give better results based on user profiles, geographic location and human rather than machine algorithms.
And yes, the future of search engine should also be language friendly, that no matter what language it is written, the search engine should be able to crawl it and give it as a relevant search result to the users.”
As a conclusion Ms. Meyer said:
We’re all familiar with 80-20 problems, where the last 20% of the solution is 80% of the work. Search is a 90-10 problem. Today, we have a 90% solution: I could answer all of my unanswered Saturday questions, not ideally or easily, but I could get it done with today’s search tool. (If you’re curious, the answers are below.) However, that remaining 10% of the problem really represents 90% (in fact, more than 90%) of the work.
