London, England (AHN)-New research shows your mobile phone could be a major health hazard, crawling with potentially lethal bacteria.
According to the research, with tens of thousands of microbes living on each square inch, cell phones harbor more bacteria than a toilet seat, the sole of a shoe, or a door handle.
Here at Google Research we have been using word n-gram models for a variety of R&D projects, such as statistical machine translation, speech recognition, spelling correction, entity detection, information extraction, and others. While such models have usually been estimated from training corpora containing at most a few billion words, we have been harnessing the vast power of Google's datacenters and distributed processing infrastructure to process larger and larger training corpora. We found that there's no data like more data, and scaled up the size of our data by one order of magnitude, and then another, and then one more - resulting in a training corpus of one trillion words from public Web pages.
