Research happens across all of Google, and affects everything we do.
Research at Google is unique. Because so much of what we do hasn't been done before, the lines between research and development are often very blurred. This hybrid approach allows our discoveries to affect the world, both through improving Google products and services, and through the broader advancement of scientific knowledge.Google's Hybrid Approach to Research

Google and UCSB partner on Quantum Computing Hardware Initiative
John Martinis and his team at UC Santa Barbara has joined the Quantum Artifical Intelligence team at Google in a hardware initiative to design and build new quantum information processors based on superconducting electronics. With an integrated hardware group, the Quantum AI team will now be able to implement and test new designs for quantum optimization and inference processors based on recent theoretical insights as well as our learnings from the D-Wave quantum annealing architecture. Google will continue to collaborate with D-Wave scientists and to experiment with the "Vesuvius" machine at NASA Ames which will be upgraded to a 1000 qubit "Washington" processor.

Tushar Chandra is a Principal Engineer at Google Research and a co-lead for the Sibyl project, a large-scale Machine Learning platform widely used within Google. Tushar received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Cornell University in 1993 and joined IBM Research thereafter, where he worked on distributed systems projects such as Reliable Scalable Cluster Technology, Gryphon, and Oceano. Tushar joined Google in 2004, where he has worked on Bigtable, a distributed system for managing structured data, as well as a platform for fault tolerance. He was a joint winner of the 2010 ACM-EATCS Edsger W. Dijkstra Prize in Distributed Computing.
May 18 - 22
From May 18 - 22, Florence, Italy will host the 24th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW 2015), the premier international forum to present and discuss progress in research, development, standards, and applications of the topics related to the Web. In addition to offering research and poster sessions, workshops, tutorials, demonstrations, industry and developer tracks, panels, and a Ph.D symposium, Google Distinguished Scientist Andrei Broder will be delivering one of the conference's keynotes. As Gold Sponsor, Google will be on hand to share our latest research discoveries via paper presentations and workshops. We hope to see you there!
