Google Home Alone investigates the lonely searches of people. In the book Alone Together, MIT professor Sherry Turkle stated how technology has affected our communication and relationships. "We expect so much from technology and not too much from other people." We retreat to our screen when social connection is needed instead of talking to actual individuals. The project is meant to highlight the loneliness the society is currently facing by using technologies we are familiar with, Google search engine (auto-complete API) and its very own virtual assistant.
