Google Search of the Future?

Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google, talks about the future of search (Sergey is Google co-founder Sergey Brin)
Now, Sergey argues that the correct thing to do is to just connect it straight to your brain. In other words, you know, wire it into your head. And so we joke about this and said, we have not quite figured out what that problem looks like…But that would solve the problem. In other words, if we just - if you had the thought and we knew what you meant, we could run it and we could run it in parallel.
When asked if they were actually working on the product
“Well, I wish we were. But we don’t exactly have all the medical clinics necessary to test brain insertion.”
As the article indicates, the point of Schmidt's joke (It is a joke, right?) is that search engines have a difficult time reading our minds.
