Google predicited Norway would score 388 in #eurovision. They scored 387

A fairly good night for Google's prediction tech.



Google's Eurovision gadget used searches to predicted not only winners but scores. They did very well with the first place - getting it down to just one point. Norway, though, was a run away winner.

Google's results for the top 10 are fairly good but nevertheless this is a strong indication of what the search tech can do. Google's next move? Wall Street traders will wonder but the engine does need a healthy dose of searches in order to make the predictions.
