Google’s attempt of simulating the human brain, with thousands of processors in conjunction with thinking software, discovered the house cat. It’s a huge step forward in computing, and the best part is…it’s learning.

"We will prevent terms that are closely associated with piracy from appearing in Autocomplete. While it’s hard to know for sure when search terms are being used to find infringing content, we’ll do our best to prevent Autocomplete from displaying the terms most frequently used for that purpose."
