Google CEO Predicts the Internet Will "Disappear"

Google chief executive (CEO) Eric Schmidt has predicted that the Internet as we know it today will disappear in the future.

Schmidt said at the World Economic Forum in Davos that the Internet could become a thing of the past as online connections become ever smarter and personalized thanks to the growth of the Internet of Things.

“There will be so many IP addresses, so many devices, sensors, things that you are wearing, things that you are interacting with, that you won’t even sense it,” Schmidt said, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

“It will be part of your presence all the time. Imagine you walk into a room, and the room is dynamic. And with your permission, and all of that, you are interacting with the things going on in the room.”

Schmidt concluded, “A highly personalized, highly interactive and very, very interesting world emerges.”

The Google executive went on to talk about the problem of Google’s market dominance, which has led to legal battles such as the antitrust case related to the mobile search market.

“You now see so many strong tech platforms coming, and you are seeing a reordering and a future reordering of dominance or leaders because of the rise of apps on the smartphone,” he said.

“All bets are off at this point as to what the smartphone app infrastructure is going to look like as a whole new set of players emerges to power smartphones, which are nothing but supercomputers.

“I view that as a completely open market at this point.”
