WithGoogle.com is the rest of the giant GOOGLE iceberg, with the tip being its search. Stay tuned to know some top WithGoogle.com projects and how you can benefit.
If you have to imagine something countless in technology, the first one that comes into my mind is the number of Google projects.
At the same time, Google is also notorious for shutting down its services and products. As a matter of fact, you can check an exhaustive list of projects killed by Google or take a look at Google Cemetery.
But Google, the fourth largest company by market cap in 2022, has obviously seen more success and impacted lives more than any other company on this planet.
WithGoogle.com is a blend that aims at helping people at large while (sometimes) introducing them to a few relevant Google services.
And while all WithGoogle.com projects serve a specific audience, we will list a few while trying to avoid monotony.
News Initiative helps authentic stories reach their rightful audience. This huge pool of resources tries to assist entrepreneurs in flourishing in the ever-competitive news industry.
You can sign in as a journalist and business manager to get training recommendations. This gives you a list of lessons and tools to hone your storytelling to attract a broader audience base.
For instance, there are courses about using Google trends, cleaning research data, etc. Besides, you get introduced to some tools like Google earth studio and data GIF maker, which have important use cases.
Additionally, there is much regarding news gathering, verification, security, data, etc., making News Initiative vital for beginners and pros alike.
Experiments is the most fun WithGoogle.com thing I could find. These are essentially experiments that work with the updated version of Chrome (mostly Android).
One such project, Floom (g.co/floom), lets you see through a tunnel to the other side of the globe in your browser. First, you position the tunnel anywhere in your surroundings and then tap to open the gates to the other side.
Another interesting project, Teachable Machine, helps you create machine learning models without code. Basically, you help the machine identify things using just your webcam or uploading samples.
I created a model using my son’s toys, a duck and a multi-colored ball. Next, I checked if it could identify them, and it did, with 100% accuracy.
If you have similar-looking objects or images, try my ML model over here, and see if it impresses you.
While this seems fun, similar (but more efficient) versions are used for automatic number plate recognition in traffic engineering and management.
But not just these, Experiments have a total of 17 collections to entertain and educate you about modern tech.
The A-Z of AI
We are surrounded by artificial intelligence (AI), yet often bewildered and confused by it. The A-Z of AI is a WithGoogle.com project helping you with AI fundamentals and its use cases in everyday life.
The short series comprises AI basics, its creation, effects, and applications.
The lessons are easy to understand with interesting visuals. The A-Z of AI is created by Oxford Internet Institute in partnership with Google.
Be Internet Awesome
The internet is a scary place. And when informed adults routinely fall prey to cyber traps, it’s important to educate the kids upfront.
Be Internet Awesome is Google’s initiative that talks to kids about staying safe on the internet. But it’s not only tips, as Google seems to know there are better ways to do this.
There is one interactive game, Interland, about crucial internet learning and proper code of conduct. For instance, one section, Kind Kingdom, is about respecting each other, which is essential for social media users. Another one, Reality River can help detect phishing attempts and steer clear.
You can also find animated short films giving similar but vital messages.
Overall, Be Internet Awesome will do what warnings cannot. And why just kids? It can be equally helpful for all.
