Today, you’re phone knows who you are, where you are, where you’re going, to some degree, because it can see your path. And with that and with your permission, it’s possible for software and software developers to predict where you’re going to go, to suggest people you should meet, to suggest activities and so forth,” he said. “So ultimately what happens is the mobile phone does what it does best, which is remember everything and make suggestions.”

Allowing your phone to know you, follow you and help you will allow users to enjoy their social experience more, he contended. The experience of will become increasingly personal and more fulfilling.

The computer will suggest things that you might be interested in,” Schmidt said. “Since I’m a history buff, if I’m walking down here in the street, it will tell me the history of the area or it will tell me about something that I might be interested in.”
