Google Takes on World Problems With ‘Solve For X’

Posted by at 3:36 pm on February 7, 2012

Google has launched a new site aimed at taking on large scale problems called Solve For X. Described by some as “Google’s answer to TED”, Solve for X is described this way by it’s creators:

“Solve for X is 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.”

The forum started with a small face-to-face event co-hosted by Astro Teller, Megan Smith, and Eric Schmidt – the Solve for X talks are now being posted on http://www.wesolveforx.com. Google hopes that you will watch the Solve for X talks, join the G+ conversation, and post your own Solve for X talks.
