We all have witnessed Google gear up for its twentieth birthday last month by going back to its search roots. The company has launched a Dataset Search on 5 September that enabled a new search engine for academics, researchers, and policymakers searching for scientific and other data online.
The search engine is made available in beta, in multiple languages, with environment pertaining to social science and government. Now, the company is aiming to embrace all academic resources and institutions around the globe, to tag their open datasets for enabling the service. We all know that Google already runs Google Scholar for academic research; the new search page is reminding us of some middle-aged researchers on the Google homepage. Just imagine them looking at an acre of white space with a keyhole into the world of information.
From that moment, Google has committed to making information easier for algorithms, distortion of information itself.
In recent days, we might have observed Google’s reinforcements for committing towards openness. This is accomplished with the handling of fully operational management of Kubernetes containerization/ virtualization tool to the open source community with the help of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.
This is aiding in the achievement of Ethereum blockchain dataset which is made available to its Big Query analytics data warehouse.
We all recollect use that letterbox-shaped search window, yet somehow skip looking at the giant logo above the search window, that brands every tad part of information around the globe.
