The power of Google has garnered an unprecedented growth for the past several years, so powerful to the point that it can predict specific anomalies before it happens, according to journalist Andreas Ekström in this Google stats keynote.
Internet search queries are monopolized by Google with an 89% market share. Most people are unaware of what this exactly means, but for a lot of companies, this means that they can figure out valuable marketing statistics such as what products to sell, where to sell those products and when to sell those products. The information culminated from Google queries results in invaluable insight about the society.
Ekström’s Google stats keynote showcases how much power Google actually has and provides people with possible implications if Google decides to exploit its valuable market database.
