Google’s Future: Microphones in the Ceiling and Microchips in Your Head

December 9, 2013 – The Independent

“I don’t have a microchip in my head – yet,” says the man charged with transforming Google’s relations with the technology giant’s human users. But Scott Huffman does envisage a world in which Google microphones, embedded in the ceiling, listen to our conversations and interject verbal answers to whatever inquiry is posed.

Whether Google users want a microphone embedded in every ceiling is another matter after the company became enveloped in a crisis of trust following Edward Snowden’s revelations about the US Government’s National Security Agency’s clandestine electronic-surveillance programme PRISM.

Google believes it can ultimately fulfil people’s data needs by sending results directly to microchips implanted into its user’s brains.
