Google search expert in critical condition at hospital
After being in coma for several hours, Blair-Goldensohn responded to commands to open his eyes and squeeze a hand, reports NY Daily News. The computer engineer from the upper West Side was removed from a ventilator but remained heavily sedated to reduce swelling in his brain, relatives said. "He's slowly improving," said Blair-Goldensohn's mom.
The natural language search expert Blair-Goldensohn, 33, is fighting for his life. Blair-Goldensohn earned a computer science Ph.D from Columbia University in 2007. He is now employed at Google's New York City office, where he specializes in developing search technology that can respond to natural language queries.
One of Blair-Goldensohn's colleagues at Google's Manhattan office said, "Everyone is really upset and shocked" by the incident. "Sasha is a really great guy and very generous with his time," the Co-worker said.
Hoping for the best, a Spokesperson from Google said, "Sasha is a well-loved colleague, and our thoughts go out to him and his family at this difficult time."
