NEWS: Google Dataset Search is real

Good morning colleagues,

I’ve recently started to follow Cassie Kozyrkov on LinkedIn, and yesterday she raised up a new Google platform called Dataset Search. Quoting her:

What’s the catch? There isn’t one. This really is the same thing as searching with Google Images or Google Scholar, but for datasets. Over 20 million (!) datasets are currently indexed and available… and that index is growing quickly.

Our fellow, @alvinctk mentioned it but it didn’t had the attention it deserved:

Hope you use it pretty well!

Yes, it is real and very exciting!

I love thinking how this has the potential to change the way students work with data - going from choosing from lists like “Top 20 datasets to learn Data Science” to searching for relevant datasets based on their cravings!
