There are plenty of rumours as to what Google co-founder Sergey Brin is working on at Google — most of which centre around Google’s fringe projects under Google[x].We caught up with Sebastian Thrun, the lead engineer behind Google[x], to find out how involved Sergey Brin is. It turns out that’s pretty much where he spends most of his time.
“He is very much so involved with Google[x]. The Glasses, everything, they’re his baby,” Thrun said. “He’s great, he’s super insightful. It’s no accident he was the first person spotted wearing the glasses.”
That means he’s on the team that — so far — is handling Google’s self-driving cars, the computerized Google Glasses, and its indoor mapping system, which includes the inside of buildings in Google Maps.
So, there you have it.
