Google piques curiosity with Solve for X website, video

Google on Monday released a video regarding its Solve for X project, which the company says is "a place where the curious can go to hear and discuss radical technology ideas for solving global problems."

It's got a TED-like think tank feel to it, but possibly with oodles of Google resources behind it. It appears related to Google's up-to-now largely secretive Google X research lab that the New York Times recently shed some light on.

The blogosphere has buzzed about Google X being the hatchery for such rumored technologies as Majel, a supposed answer from Google to Apple's Siri voice assistant technology.

Here's a link to the Solve for X video.

Google last year shut down the separate Google Labs, which was responsible for scads of cool and useful projects, including Gmail and Google Goggles.
