A youthful Larry Page once described the perfect search engine as something that “understands exactly what you mean, and gives you back exactly what you want”.

At Google X, the company’s top-secret research lab, scientists are working on that and more. They are busy building robots that will understand exactly what you want, and do exactly what you want, whenever you want it, be it chauffeuring your car, cooking your dinner, or standing in for you at the office on days when you feel like staying home.

And Page himself is not standing still. Reappointed CEO in 2011, his top priority is to sharpen Google’s focus on “the big bets that will make a difference in the world”.

"If you're changing the world, you're working on important things. You're excited to get up in the morning”
