Google introduced “Knowledge Graph” with real answers!!Posted by on May 19, 2012 12:10 PM
This week Google formally introduced its “Knowledge Graph” with the tagline - “things not strings”.
Google will share its knowledge with users on many things including: places, people, things, technology, entertainment, fine arts, sports, geography, weather and much more. All these things will be revealed by the ‘knowledge graph’ apart from usual search results. This is a step forward in the direction of people getting answers about concepts/meaning of the search term; and not just getting to see pages with the search query in them.
Google said, “This is a critical first step towards building the next generation of search, which taps into the collective intelligence of the web and understands the world a bit more like people do.”
Using a link graph, Google will see how pages link to each other and then choose the popular and relevant links for the search query. Whether it is ‘landmarks, celebrities, cities, sports teams, buildings, geographical features, movies, celestial objects, works of art’, people will get knowledgeable links of information that’s relevant to the query.
