Google Research has its official website here. Upon querying the website’s search engine with the keyword “bayesian”, I was pleasantly surprised to find among the hits, one page entitled “Work at Google”. This come-work-for-us page contains the following paragraph:
We’re exploring large-scale machine learning as a means of improving search quality. Our spelling correction system is one excellent example (spehl korector? phonitick spewling? who needs a dictniary?). People searching for Britney Spears have clearly found it useful on many occasions. In more recent work, we have been working on algorithms and techniques to construct very large scale Bayesian network models to help understand the relationships between words.
Cool! Of all the hundreds of projects that Google works on, someone at Google thinks that this particular project (among a few others) is cool enough to mention in their come-work-for-us page. I thoroughly agree! Now what would it take to convince Google to start a small research group that did research on quantum computation, from a quantum bayesian network perspective? We can only dream.
Oh, by the way. GOOGLE SUCKS, GOOGLE IS AN EVIL MONOPOLY, BIG BROTHER, EXPENSIVE INEFFECTIVE ADS, BAD SERVICE, DECADENT WORKPLACES, VIOLATION OF PRIVACY, UNETHICAL CROOKS, HEARTLESS PUPPY KILLERS, DOG HATERS, WIFE BEATERS. Just trying to game the Google rating of this blog post. Will this raise it or lower it?
