Well, we knew it would come.  We just didn’t know when.

Google Voice Search is coming… (here’s the story on mashable)

Here was my concept for “Google Aware” (which I never claimed was original… in fact, i think it’s an obvious extension to many technologies).  I should have finished it.  Oh well.  Sometimes great ideas are just damn hard to pull off with limited time and marketing resources.

One of the key points in the NYTimes article is the fact that Google has the ability to analyze all the data coming through that pipe and that will be what makes the difference in quality.  Just recognizing voice and passing it to search isn’t that tough… (heck even I can code that with some libraries).  It’s training this system over time.

Anyhoo.  Cool stuff.  Everything Computes!  It’s happening.

Google Talk now does on the fly language translation.

This is huge.

It makes my bluetooth Googler Intelligence adapter that much cooler.  Yup.  I’ve been working on a bluetooth ear piece, clothing clip on that will listen to ambient talk around you and do look ups on anything it hears or you can set it to respond to a cue (clap, tap, voice command) from you.

The idea is that you can find out about anything via Google, anywhere you get cell service, without looking down or interrupting normal behavior.

Translation matters because you can do this in ANY COUNTRY.

Basically my service uses google talk to look things up via IM bot that queries google and/or other resources like wikipedia.  It can read back (text to speech) the abstracts, definitions, calculations, etc. into your ear, or print them on a HUD… now it will be able to do it in any language.
