Abstract

Every day, all of us use Google to perform an average of over 50 searches. Beginning in 2011, Google began to (helpfully?) aggregate all this data to create an "autopredict" or "autocomplete" function. The objective of this assignment is to use this information to extrapolate findings about American attitudes regarding issues of social justice, such as gender, religion, race, and ethnicity.
