- WHAT IS THE SECRET BEHIND GOOGLE’S PIGION RANK TECHNOLOGY:
PigeonRank’s success relies primarily on the superior trainability of the domestic pigeon (Columba ) and its unique capacity to recognize objects regardless of spatial orientation. The common gray pigeon can easily distinguish among items displaying only the minutest differences, an ability that enables it to select important web sites from among thousands of similar pages…..
By collecting group of pigeons in dense clusters, Google is able to process search questions at speeds superior to traditional search engines(yahoo and bing using so), which typically rely on birds of prey, brooding hens or slow-moving waterfowl to do their relevance rankings.
When a search Question is submitted to Google, it is routed to a data store where monitors flash result pages at high speeds. When a important result is observed by one of the pigeons in the cluster, it strikes a rubber-coated steel bar with its beak, which assigns the page a PigeonRank value of one. For each peck, the PigeonRank increases. Those pages receiving the most pecks, are returned at the top of the user’s results page with the other results displayed in pecking order.
Google’s pigeon-driven methods make tampering with our results extremely difficult. ….While some websites have tried to boost their ranking by including images on their pages of bread crumbs, bird seed and parrots posing seductively in resplendent plumage, Google’s PigeonRank technology cannot be deceived by these techniques. A Google search is an easy, honest and objective way to find high-quality websites with information relevant to your search
1:How was Pigeon-Rank developed?
- The ease of training pigeons was documented early in the annals of science and fully explored by noted psychologist B.F. Skinner, who demonstrated that with only minor incentives, pigeons could be trained to execute complex tasks such as playing ping pong, piloting bombs or revising the Abatements, Credits and Refunds section of the national tax code.
Brin and Page were the first to recognize that this adaptability could be harnessed through massively parallel pecking to solve complex problems, such as ordering large datasets or ordering pizza for large groups of engineers. Page and Brin experimented with numerous avian motivators before settling on a combination of linseed and flax (lin/ax) that not only offered superior performance, but could be gathered at no cost from nearby open space preserves. This open space lin/ax powers Google’s operations to this day, and a visit to the data coop reveals pigeons happily pecking away at lin/ax kernels and seeds.
2: What are the challenges of operating so many pigeon clusters (PCs)?
- Pigeons naturally operate in dense populations, as anyone holding a pack of peanuts in an urban plaza is aware. This compatibility enables Google to pack enormous numbers of processors into small spaces, with rack after rack stacked up in our data coops. While this is optimal from the standpoint of space conservation and pigeon contentment, it does create issues during molting season, when large fans must be brought in to blow feathers out of the data coop. Removal of other pigeon by products was a greater challenge, until Page and Brin developed ground breaking technology for converting poop to pixels, the tiny dots that make up a monitor’s display. The clean white background of Google’s home page is powered by this renewable process.
3: Aren’t pigeons really stupid? How do they do this?
- While no pigeon has actually been confirmed for a seat on the Supreme Court, pigeons are surprisingly adept at making instant judgments when confronted with difficult choices. This makes them suitable for any job requiring accurate and authoritative decision-making under pressure. Among the positions in which pigeons have served capably are replacement air traffic controllers, butterfly ballot counters and pro football referees during the “no-instant replay” years.
4:Where does Google get its pigeons?
- Google have secret branches in nook and corner around world….even in Kerala they have …..they train the pigeon’s 3years in a enclosed place to shape them
5: Isn’t it cruel to keep pigeons and use them for work?
- Google following all international standards for the ethical treatment of its pigeons. Not only are they given free range of rooms, special break time and leisure rooms have been set up for their convenience. These rooms are stocked with seeds and grains with cooling system….and special workforce is assigned to look after them.
6:What’s the future of pigeon computing?
- Google’scientists are busy researching about using other birds and animals in effective way to boost Google’s upcoming technological innovations.They had opened a branch in “Malappuram”(kerala india) with a fake name to flourish their animal research……it’s very secret…Sorry Fools what you have read is rubbish and fabricated article . it was posted in Google’s website years back to celebrate fool’s day in 2002 April …lol.and it is true that FOOL’S are FOOL’S always and we can cheat them or fool them easily…like this……HA……Okey My friends to read it….HAPPY FOOLS DAYS
