Google creating another TED through www.wesolveforx.com or in search of new future

Google has launched a new project www.wesolveforx.com on sixth of February and there is lot of buzz on internet because of its domain name which resembles with a super secret lab of Google known as Google X. We solve for x describes itself as 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. These 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.

When we see this project very closely it is on the lines of TED ideas worth spreading. The basic difference between these two is

  • Solve for x is a place to hear and discuss radical technology which could help billion of people on the other hand TED is a platform which supports technology, entertainment and design.
  • We solve for x is a project by Google.

The basic question still lies that why Google has launched  a project which is a mere discussion forum for radical technologies which will impact billions of people on planet earth. We think that Google has launched this project on a very serious tone keeping future and branding in sight.

  • The name itself suggest that unseen problem of future which if solved may transform human life forever. It is like Google has opened a platform and searching for the idea which is going to change the world.
  • The project is an approach from Google to connect with the talent and ideas directly. It will be really premature to say that the Google will take any of these ideas under its wing.
  • You can share or tweet about www.wesolveforx.com on Facebook and Tweeter but if you want to follow www.wesolveforx.com  then there is only one option that is Google+.  So if you have not signed up on Google+ and if you want to follow we solve for x then you have to sign up and be a member of Google+.
  • Google is a master of creating products and projects which overall add enormous value to Google in terms of branding and marketing. We solve for x will also do that.
  • One point which we will look forward is whether Google would take any of these ideas from this platform under it’s wings to commercialize it. If it is worth then sure they will take it.

In reality we think that Google has taken a broad approach that is beyond Google to look into the future and we are pretty sure that it will pay off.
