Want to dabble in Big Data, right from the comfort of your own keypad? Want to know what the rest of the world is thinking using one of the world’s great algorithms?
I don’t pretend to understand Google’s Autocomplete, but I do know that it wants to try to answer my question before I even know what I want to ask. In other words, it takes what billions of people are doing and tells us, Big Data-style, exactly what the rest of the world is thinking about.
It’s very cool, sometimes distracting, and often very scary.
