Somewhat lost in the hype of Google’s Cloud Machine Learning announcement (which is itself neat), was the release of Google’s Public Data Sets.
I think this has been previously happening, but now Google has an official location for these public data sets stored in BigQuery. You can:
- Access and use the data in your applications
- Request Google to host your own public data set
It will be fun to watch this site expand with more public datasets. Happy Exploration!
Have you seen that Google has teamed up with @Tableau to find the next #BigDataChamp. Free credits & a chance to win trip to London & Texas – http://tabsoft.co/1VukeyP
Thank you, I will be putting up a post about this and some other contests.
