Have you ever wondered who the CEO of Google is? Well, his name is Sundar Pichai and he wants to change the world. He was born in Madurai, Tamil, India. He lived most of his childhood in Chennai. His father was an electrical engineer at GE. His father owned a two room apartment in Chennai, and Sundar Pichai grew up in this apartment. He received his degree from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur in Metallurgical Engineering. Later, he came to U.S to study at Stanford University.
He started to work at Google in 2004. He was working on incorporating Google as the default search engine on the toolbar in Internet Explorer and Firefox. He took over the Chrome project and brought it to the world in 2008. He was a major contributor to the creation of Google Drive and Chrome OS. He was put in charge of Android and is working on mobile carriers.
Currently, he is working on artificial intelligence, and how it can change the way we ask questions. Larry Page, one of the co-founders of Google, had a dream that questions could be answered before being asked. It sounds weird, but think of the possibilities. For example, an A.I. assistant might say, “Father’s Day is coming up– here are some ideas.” These helpful tips would occur even before you asked about Father’s Day. With inventions like that, the future for Sundar Pichai seems endless. He is in charge of so many projects from Google, many of which can change the world.
