Google Translate Handwriting
Highlighting In Google Book
Auto-Translation of Norwegian
Google’s translation algorithms are kind of amazing, but it seems to have some trouble with Norwegian in this video. Here’s a sample from the first minute:
“Ministering from releasing also finished warnings from his dick saw why not and schloss good and what’s going on s on went who would be because the fun name didn’t know hood systemic was looking at Skynyrd immune from for their successful and move he said and ripples beings man comment what at some point hadn’t been on that phenomena height I wilson’s clear that the the docs ready to their allude to that of her ordered posts it comes to the house yes that is me…”
Turn on “closed captioning” for the entire translation.

The Internet = A Cat
As reported in Slate (that I somehow originally missed), when Google X (their secret research team) passed 10 million video stills into an algorithm, the “silicon cortex” formed the image of a cat, pictured above.

Google’s Ngram Viewer
Today I found Google’s Ngram viewer and raw data sets. Above is the frequency of the words “Jeffrey” and “Jeff” in all of Google’s scanned books from 1800-2000.
The query is insanely fast, considering the data that the viewer must have to read through. Also of note, the frequency is normalized to the number of books published that year.
