Google has just opened 3 new newsgroups (accessible only on their site ). One of them is dedicated to a project of Google aiming at making it possible to make research by telephone (by undoubtedly using systems of voice recognition?). Note: at the present time the site labs.google.com is not accessible and redirects to the home page of Google.

In no paticular order:

nice toy: google.public.labs.sets (amazing what you can do with a few billion search queries)
hohum: google.public.labs.glossary (must be something of interest I'm missing...)
huh: google.public.labs.keyboard-shortcuts (scratches head. nah...already got keyboard shortcuts - dont' confuse the issue)
nifty: google.public.labs.voice-search (I have no use for it, but nifty none-the-less. Would be cooler if it could do it via telephony)

Thanks Brett. It is amazing what you can do with a few billion search queries. :)

The glossary seems low-profile, but I've already needed it a couple times when I've come across a weird acronym I didn't know..

O.K., I just called the voice activated search line. That is really pretty cool. I'm hoping that the idea is to be able to connect to it directly through your internet connection rather than having to pick up a phone.

I could really drive my wife nuts by talking to my monitor all day long.

For those using the keyword sets...The words are hidden search links.

It is an authority finder! As in web communities. Put in "microsoft" and "ibm" and it returns other authorities in their same realm.

The keyword results ew - they are hidden links - click on them. You can't deduce they are links except by accidently mousing over them - no underlines, no color...etc

Google Sets will expand any things into a full set.

Put in "walk" and "run" and it returns "hop" "skip" "jump", ...

Put in "apple" and "orange" and it returns other kinds of fruits.

Put in two competive companies in an industry and it returns other companies in the same industry/

Can you dumb that down a bit?

You input a word
A set shows other related words
Each related word also has an authority relationship to the first word you input?

What is an authority?

Put in "spun" and "second spin". these are two companies that sell used cds on the web.

You get a bunch of other companies that sell used cds on the web.

I have tried a couple of dozen examples. It works better for bigger companies (more incomming links?).

Roughly, (this is off the top and probably is not stated that well) an authority in a web community is a page that a lot of other pages point to in that same realm. In the community defined by "gateway" and "dell" you will find other companies that sell computers retail (compaq, hp, ibm, apple, acer, micron,...). try it. enter gateway and dell into google sets.

Brett - what do you mean "hidden links"?

The keywords are presented to me as underlined blue links.

Am I missing something?

(FYI - I'm using IE 6)

It is an Opera thing.

Depends on how you have IE setup. I get no links in ie.

>http://labs1.google.com/gvs.html

? ~How~ does that work? You dial a PHONE number, say your request, and then, magically, your search results appear on the computer?

How would they know how to put which phone call with which ip? If I just click the 'click here' link, I get a different search each time...like it is a random search.

It has to be a joke...

right?

<added> I do like the keyboard shortcuts..

grnidone - you can refresh that page and it will show others peoples results. I think right now its just who is using it, there are not a lot of people so the results are steady enough. And if the phone number is only 1 number - its busy for everyone else when they call so it assumes you got it by the time you hung up.

You can use Google Sets as a tool to figure who your audience is and where your advertising dollars can go.
