Amit Singhal has been with Google for 15 years, and he is the technology company's senior vice president of search. He describes what's on the horizon in terms of search, and compares current search capability to a child's language ability.

Singhal tells Here & Now's Peter O'Dowd, "We are at a stage where Google understands language... somewhere between a 7-10 year old, but not a teenager yet."
