Data is the New Oil and Google DataSet Search is the Motherlode of Data –


Data is the new oil and now Google is providing Dataset Search. Datasets are needed to train Machine Learning and for other computer projects. Data is a vital resource for the modern age and now Datasets are easily published and discovered. Dataset Search has indexed almost 25 million of these datasets, giving you a single place to search for datasets and find links to where the data is. You can now filter the results based on the types of dataset that you want (e.g., tables, images, text), or whether the dataset is available for free from the provider.
