“Google X, stylized as Google[x], is a semi-secret facility run by Google dedicated to making major technological advancements. It is located about a half mile from Google’s corporate headquarters, the Googleplex, in Mountain View, California.[2][3] Work at the lab is overseen by Sergey Brin, one of Google‘s co-founders and President of Alphabet, while scientist and entrepreneur Astro Teller (Captain of Moonshots) directs day-to-day activities.[4][5][6] Teller says that they aim to improve technologies by a factor of 10, and to develop “science fiction-sounding solutions.”[7][8] The lab started up in 2010 with the development of a self-driving car.[6] On August 10, 2015, Google announced plans to shift control of X Labs from Google Inc. to Alphabet Inc. under a corporate restructuring.”
