Research happens across all of Google, and affects everything we do.
Research at Google is unique. Because so much of what we do hasn't been done before, the lines between research and development are often very blurred. This hybrid approach allows our discoveries to affect the world, both through improving Google products and services, and through the broader advancement of scientific knowledge.Google's Hybrid Approach to Research

Timelapse: A Picture of Earth through Time
A collaboration between Google, NASA, the U.S. Geological Survey, Carnegie Mellon University's CREATE Lab, and TIME has released what is possibly the most comprehensive picture of our changing planet ever made available to the public. Using millions of satellite images of Earth collected over the last quarter century from the ongoing Landsat mission, Google Earth Engine and Focused Research Award recipients CREATE Lab utilized nearly 2 million CPU hours of processing time to convert these annual Earth images into a browsable HTML5 animation. This was released as part of TIME's new Timelapse project. Visit the Google Blog to see more.

Co-leaders of the Big Picture visualization group in Google's Cambridge, MA office, Martin Wattenberg and Fernanda Viégas are the minds behind compelling visualizations, such as Google+ Ripples. Authors of more than 30 academic papers, Martin and Fernanda are committed to a rigorous understanding of visualization informed by academic research. Prior to joinging Google, Martin and Fernanda founded Flowing Media, Inc., a visualization studio focused on media and consumer oriented projects. Before this, the two led IBM's Visual Communication Lab, creating the public visualization platform Many Eyes. Read more about their work in our Google+ interview.
Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Portland, Oregon
This June, Google sponsors CVPR 2013, the IEEE annual conference on computer vision and pattern recognition. Hosted in Portland, Oregon, CVPR 2013 draws industry professionals and researchers to share the most recent advances in the areas of 3D Imaging and Reasoning, Image Statistics and Learning, Pattern Recognition, Imaging and Segmentation, and much more. Google is proud to sponsor CVPR each year; we will be in attendance to share our latest research, with Googlers presenting multiple papers and posters. Visit the Google exhibit at CVPR to see product demonstrations, chat with Google engineers and see a schedule of our research presentations and talks.
