“Google By the Numbers” or, “How We Feed the AI”

Sure, Amazon’s Alexa-powered devices are nifty, but there’s only one AI king of the jungle – Google. Google benefits from more nodes on the network – i.e. more input data from which to learn – than any other single technology platform. “Google By the Numbers” or “How We Feed the AI”:
  • Google processes 63,000+ search queries each second
  • 3.8 million searches per minute
  • 227 million searches per hour
  • 5.4 billion searches per day
  • 2 trillion searches per year
  • 15% of all Google searches have never been searched previously
  • More than 2 billion people with Chrome browsers. Chrome serves as a highly sophisticated data collection engine
  • People watch over a billion hours of video each day
  • Approximately 2 billion logged-in users watch video games on YouTube each month.
  • Passive to Active: as Google releases its cloud gaming offering – Stadia – many of today’s “passive” YouTube video game views will convert to “active” views. This translates to a richer data input set for Google’s data centers/AI / machine learning layer.
