We’ve all had surprising encounters with Google Autocomplete, the function that sheds light onto the humorous, twisted and/or ignorant ponderisms of others. So we thought we’d have a little fun with the feature to gauge how the masses feel about various musical genres.
Google explains how its Autocomplete predictions are created:
“…Each prediction shown in the drop-down list has been typed before by Google users or appears on the web…”; “Autocomplete predictions are algorithmically determined based on a number of factors, like popularity of search terms, without any human intervention.”
Seems reasonable enough. Let’s try this thing out.
