When a government agency, medical office, or another institution scans a document and uploads it to a Web site, the images are not searchable -- they contain pictures of text, not the text itself. This is the so-called "Dark Web" -- its sinister-sounding name is just a reference to how difficult it is to search.
In late October, Google started addressing this. Using optical character recognition, the search engine will now convert images to text and include the results. The process is not a straightforward one: should "O" be read as the letter or the number? Is the text in English or another language? But the search engine crawls the Web at regular intervals, decrypting the vast storehouse of information.
In April, Google started including HTML form text in search results, and has been including PDF text as well. It's an ongoing effort to make sure all data on the Internet is searchable, not just the most common text.
What is purple imagine big dark sky? That is it very interesting dark purple sky whole is imagine. Wow!
While I find what Google is doing to be very useful, I still can't help but be creeped out by their abilities and their relentless drive to harvest every piece of information available online.
I just hope their company motto lives on and is held up.
