Google held a media event in San Francisco today where they talked about how they're tackling barriers on mobile, announcing that they're bringing speech recognition and computer vision technology to the desktop and took the next step for Google Instant - Google Pages. Google are right when they say the thirst for knowledge doesn't stop when you get off the computer, it continues on your mobile device. Mobile search traffic has grown 500-percent in two years with mobile search growing at a comparable pace to Google in their early years.

 

 

Google reckon that one of the driving forces behind this growth is speech recognition. Voice search doesn't require anything but your voice making it simple as pie to run searches from your mobile device. Today Google teach their English Voice Search system using no less than 230 billion words from real queries so that they can accurately recognize the phrases people are likely to say. As the quality has increased, so has usage; in the past twelve months alone, Voice Search traffic has increased by a whopping 600-percent and every single day people speak more than two years worth of voice into their system.

 

Today Google take the next step by introducing Google Instant: Google Pages. Instant Pages can get the top search results ready in the background while you're choosing which link to click, saving you yet another two to five seconds on the average search. Impressive, huh?

 

The Google Blog story is quite long so I suggest you check out the source or the link just before and check it out!
