Complete video at: Drawing from location awareness and voice recognition technologies, representatives from Bing, Google and Wolfram Alpha weigh in on the future of Internet search. Bing's Blaise Aguera y Arcas promises a revised form of search that offers time and location specific results custom-tailored to the user. ----- DLD is an inspiring community for the 21st century which features digital innovation, science and culture and brings together thought leaders, creators, entrepreneurs and investors from Europe, the Middle-East, the Americas and Asia. This session on Web search features Blaise Aguera y Arcas (Bing), Ben Gomes (Google), Ilya Segalovich (Yandex) and Conrad Wolfram (Wolfram Alpha). Jochen Wegner (Focus Online) moderates. In 2004 Blaise Aguera y Arcas founded Seadragon, Inc., to develop ideas in scalable architectures and user interfaces for interacting with large volumes of visual information, potentially over a narrow-bandwidth connection. Microsoft bought Seadragon at the beginning of 2006. The Seadragon team's most visible project to date is Photosynth (, a collaboration with researchers at Microsoft Research and the University of Washington. Ben Gomes is a Distinguished Engineer at Google where he is a lead for the company's engineering efforts on search features. Gomes has been with Google for more than ten years and has worked in the development of nearly all aspects of the Google search service ranging from crawling and indexing to ranking and new feature design. Conrad Wolfram founded Wolfram Research Europe Ltd. in 1991 and in 1997 also became Strategic Director at Wolfram Research, Inc., founded by brother Stephen. In 2009, the Wolfram |Alpha knowledge engine spin-off was launched to dramatic interest - both because of its new approach and the unique combination of Wolfram Technologies which made it possible.
