Google has launched a new service named Google Dataset Search that caters to researchers and journalists. The tech giant is working with major organisations around the world who collate data on various categories like the weather.
According to a blog post by Google, the new search engine will help users who are collecting information for their projects or research. Google has laid out a framework according to which organisations can submit their datasets.
Organisations need to provide the information regarding who created the dataset, when it was published, how the data was collected, what the terms are for using the data, etc.
Google had also launched Scholar for students to help them search for information. Datasets are, by definition, a collection of information based on various categories.
If you do a lot of research projects and need first-hand information from the industry trusted sources, then the new search engine provision will be useful. Even though the service is in beta, the company has the benefit of Artificial Intelligence. Organisations can make their data readily available on the platform for a larger reach of audience.
With the launch of Datasets Search, gone are the days you are entirely dependant on Wikipedia for collecting all the materials for your history topics. You can check out the new search engine here.
