New Google Search Engines Opens Open Data
"Google has created a new search engine designed to help users find open data," reports Zack Quaintance.
"Launched this week, the functionality is the latest addition to Google’s specialized search engine set, which has long included commonly used searches like images and news," adds Quaintance. The new tool is expected to be a boon to developers of technology that relies on large quantities of data.
Natasha Noy, a research scientist with Google AI, discussed the potential for the new platform in a blog post announcing the new search engine, "noting in the blog that the idea here is to enable easier access to data, thereby facilitating the work of 'scientists, data journalists, data geeks, or anyone else,'" according to Quaintance.
