Google game of the year
Game of the Year. © Google.
To mark the end of the year, Google is offering a little game in the form of a multiple-choice quiz that lets you test your knowledge (or your hunches) about the most popular Internet searches in 2018. Did users google Justin Trudeau or Justin Bieber? Laurel or Yanny? You have 10 seconds to answer each of the 20 questions for the Game of the Year, but three strikes, you’re out. And since the questions get increasingly difficult, we doubt you will get to the twentieth level. But the really interesting thing is the fact that the voice that comes with the game was created using WaveNet technology, a neural network developed by DeepMind and trained with a large volume of voice samples. You can adjust the speed and tone of voice at the beginning of the game.
