News.com has some comments from Internet founding father and one of Google’s newest employees, Vint Cerf, about what he’ll be doing in his new job at Google that begins next month. Cerf spoke today at the FirstMile.US broadband conference today and told the audience:
“What (CEO) Eric Schmidt had in mind is to go around helping people understand both inside and outside of Google what Google’s potential is…I want to have the opportunity to challenge people in the labs with problems that need solving.””
Cerf also said that he plans to ask Google engineers if they’ve explored voice-enabled search.
Vint, I’m not a Google engineer but I can answer that one. The answer is yes. Google Labs once offered Google Voice. The demo is not working but info about the project can be found here. Of course, if Vin “Googles”, [voice search Google] he would also find this info. (-:
