Welcome to X, the moonshot factory!
Starting today, this is the place for all the latest updates on X projects and teams. Our new website, www.solveforx.com
, has even more pictures, videos, and behind-the-scenes peeks at X.
“Hey!” You might say. “Aren’t you Google[x]? What happened to the Google? And the brackets?”
Well, Google[x] is now simply X, a part of Alphabet. Though we have a new name, our mission hasn’t changed: invent and launch “moonshot” technologies that we hope could someday make the world a radically better place for millions, or even billions, of people.
Our projects are designed to have the riskiness and ambition of early stage research and the focus and speed of a startup—+Project Loon
, and +Google Self-Driving Car Project
are a few examples of what we’re up to. Our goal is to develop and de-risk these early stage ideas and turn them into proven technologies that make a real impact in the world—and create successful businesses along the way.
You'll also find information on this page about We Solve For X, our global community. We Solve for X (previously known as Solve for X) aims to bring together moonshot thinkers from all over the world to collaborate with each other on new ideas that have the potential to solve big global problems facing humanity.
Stay tuned—we’ll post updates here from time to time as projects move from the seemingly impossible to this-looks-like-it-just-might-work.
