What Google really wants
Thomas Schulz reads in the Berlin-Mitte city library
At the Tuesday, the 03.11.2015 around 7 p.m. loads the Schiller Library to a reading with the Spiegel correspondent Thomas Schulz a.
Thomas Schulz, the Silicon Valley correspondent for SPIEGEL, provides a unique close-up in his book What Google really wants: How the world's influential corporation is changing our future. He has exclusive access to the otherwise secretive company and offers insights into its secret laboratories and the way of thinking of the company management. His book is an urgently needed contribution to a highly explosive, often emotional debate about our data and the digital future.
Whether smartphone, internet search or navigation - Google is our gateway to the world. At the same time, Google is considered overpowering and insatiable. The group is struggling with image problems, especially in Germany, and now the EU also wants to take action against it. But Google has started to change. The corporate management firmly believes that technology can change the world for the better, and is gradually transforming the company into a machine of the future. The laboratories and research departments are working on self-driving cars, quantum computers, cancer therapies and a drone delivery service from the air. Google software will soon no longer just control smartphones, but also cars, household appliances and even robots developed in-house. Satellites and balloons at the space border are supposed to supply the whole planet with internet.
Thomas Schulz, born 1973, studied political science in Frankfurt and, as a Fulbright scholar, communication science in Miami. At Harvard University, he did research as a visiting scholar. Schulz has been writing for SPIEGEL since 2001, and has been a business correspondent in the USA since 2008. Here he first reported from New York about the financial crisis before moving to San Francisco in 2012 to set up the SPIEGEL editorial representation in Silicon Valley. Schulz writes regularly on business and internet topics, he has been awarded the Henri Nannen Prize, the Holtzbrinck Prize for business journalism and as Reporter of the Year.
