Bing's Stefan Weitz on The Future Of Search [huffingtonpost.com]
Bing director Stefan Weitz, who is shaping Microsoft's search engine as it goes head to head with Google's, predicts search will disappear in the next few years.
Search engines will not cease to exist, but their tasks will become less and less visible and more and more intuitive, Weitz said.
"The future of search is that it won't be search anymore," Weitz explained during an interview with HuffPostTech. "The future of search is that the box you've come to know and love...won't be the constraining factor. Literally everywhere you go, every device you have, everything you touch will conduct a search, whether you know it or not."
