Google's Think Tank Renamed Jigsaw, Made Part of Alphabet

Alphabet Inc. pulled Google’s 5-year-old think tank under its corporate umbrella and renamed it Jigsaw.

Jigsaw also will become a technology incubator and will be led by Jared Cohen, a close confidant of Alphabet Chairman Eric Schmidt. Cohen ran Google Ideas, the company’s in-house think tank that used technology to give people greater security and confidentiality when communicating online, among other tasks, Alphabet said in a statement.
