Comments[edit]

The fact that google can recognize pictures of cats is a mere side effect of their massive neural network program. It was never a goal to 'recognize cats', this is just how media spins it (pun intended LOL). Blonkm (talk) 14:29, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

Does anyone have interest in starting a history section all I know is that serial entrepreneur Tom Chi helped start it GeekX (talk) 09:03, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Some times I wonder if some of this stuff is true or if its just gossip making us seem advanced.--Universe Gazzer (talk) 01:26, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Proposed move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: Moved. Timrollpickering (talk) 13:02, 6 June 2013 (UTC)


Google xGoogle X – The name Google X is almost always capitalized in sources [1] (note: some of these articles are about the rumored Motorola X phone, no relation to Google X.) If that isn't enough, WP:MOSTM advises that proper noun trademarks should always be capitalized. This article was boldly moved from Google X Lab to its present location this May.

  • Current title is hideous. Support. Red Slash 18:11, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

Note: I deleted the talk page that used to live at Talk:Google X because it contained content from the old page (about the Google Labs experiment) and to preserve the edit history of the article's actual talk page. LFaraone 15:02, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

[edit]

It's just a report for now, but apparently Google will be dropped from Google X. I would propose moving this article to X (company) if this comes to fruition and is verified. The logo is apparently changing too. If it is similar to the one in the report, I would say that it qualifies for {{PD-shape}} and can be re-created/uploaded to commons. --Natural RX 17:21, 13 January 2016 (UTC)


Incorrect and/or outdated information[edit]

Google X is now X. All references beyond the first sentence (which is “X, previously Google X…”) should now just say X, not Google X [1]

Many past X projects are missing - These include Google [x] Life Sciences, Gcam, Google Watch, Project Insight, Google Brain, Flux, Project Tango. [2]

Suggest two sections, one “Projects” for current X projects, the other “Graduates” or “Past X projects” for projects that have graduated from X [3]

Requested move 2 February 2016[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: Move to X (company). We have clear consensus the article needs to move, and this appears to be the most favored option. Cúchullain t/c 18:48, 16 February 2016 (UTC)



X (incubator)? – This article does need disambiguation from X, but examples of WP:PARENDIS are usually supposed to use more common words. Using "incubator" seems to be a case of WP:NWFCTM, perhaps X (company) or X (Alphabet subsidiary) are more appropriate. If there is an established specific naming convention, it should follow that. --Natural RX 15:43, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

I'd favor X (Alphabet subsidiary) X (company). Incubator is clearly wrong, makes sense only in specialized business jargon. Tarl.Neustaedter (talk) 16:49, 2 February 2016 (UTC). After seeing discussion, I changed my preference. Tarl.Neustaedter (talk) 15:30, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
  • Question X (Alphabet subsidiary) would be an improvement, but it appears to now be a legally registered company not just a division, so wouldn't it be X (company)? In ictu oculi (talk) 17:43, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
    • Comment Alphabet's site states "Alphabet is mostly a collection of companies...", and the X site does not make reference to Alphabet, if that helps. I would suggest that X (company) is a preferred title, since 'company' is a more common name than 'subsidiary'. Also, there does not appear to be any other companies named X at this time. --Natural RX 20:27, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
    • Comment I agree with X (company). It also seems the most neutral and simple among of the valid options. Gap9551 (talk) 20:24, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
  • Comment UCN -- Google X is still the common name ; though we could call it Alphabet X -- 70.51.200.135 (talk) 05:50, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
    • Comment The name Alphabet X has never been used, this fails WP:COMMONNAME. --Natural RX 15:28, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
      • As I said, call it Google X; Alphabet X would be disambiguated form by parent company. -- 70.51.200.135 (talk) 06:00, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
        • But that is not the actual name anymore, which fails WP:PRECISE. Disambiguation is usually handed in parenthesis. --Natural RX 20:26, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
