We built a browser extension and taught it to listen out for ‘personalised’ searches. Searching for ‘balance’ brings a generic Google result, but searching for ‘My current balance’, for example, recognises this as a personal request, and displays the current balance from the Monzo account.
Google's mission statement is to "organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful." But there are worlds of information that Google does not - and as yet can not - organize. We're talking about our personal information. We've been bringing design to policy projects, exploring data mobility, asking what opportunities a truly data mobile world might surface? What if we could use Google to search inside our own personal world of information?
We’re currently exploring many more opportunities like this for a data mobile world. We’re happy to share more if you’d like to get in touch.
