Under the Radar: What went “Under the Radar” in Google’s 25 years of operations; Investments into AI startups, Anthropic
If you don’t know something, just Google it!
While Google started out as the name of a search engine company, the word has become almost synonymous with the act of looking something up online.
Beyond that, the tech firm has made itself into all parts of our lives. Some of us use Gmail for emails, Google docs for crafting documents, and Google Drive for cloud storage.
Not to mention the Android operating system that some of our phones use, and the YouTube app that we stream our videos from.
In fact, Google has 15 products that each serve over half a billion people and businesses, and six that serve more than 2 billion users too.
But it wasn't that long ago when such conveniences were not available. In fact Google was founded just 25 years ago, and is way younger than a number of industrial firms that we spoke with on the show.
So what was Google’s journey like throughout the past quarter century? What went ‘Under the Radar’ over the past 25 years?
And how does Google intend to take itself forward in the next 25 years, with the advent of Generative AI? How does it assess its peers’ investments into AI startups?
On Under the Radar, The Evening Runway’s finance presenter Chua Tian Tian posed these questions to Ben King, Managing Director, Google Singapore.
