Search Engine giant Google has now announced that their app can now understand and relate to complex search queries and thereby dig out more appropriate results.
According to Google their new Search Engine App can now 'truly understand' the meaning of your query. Basically they have changed a few things in the app thereby enabling it to break down the search query and understand the semantics of each piece.
To make it easy for end users to understand Google has given an example of what they are exactly talking about. Take for example you type a search query which reads, "Who was the US President when the Angels won the World Series?" After you have finished typing the query Google intelligent search engine break down the query into four parts (exclusively in this case) - President, US, The Angels and World Series.
Now they first collect the list of Presidents and then pick only those names who have been the President of US. On the other hand it search for 'The Angels' and soon find out that they are a basketball team. They follow this up by placing a search for 'World Series' and finally lookout for the year when 'The Angles' won the 'World Series'. On finding the exact year i.e. 2002 they pick the exact President from the listed it had gathered before.
According to Google breaking down the Search Query into individual part allows them to traverse the Knowledge Graph more reliably to dig the right facts and compose a useful answer.
"Language feels so natural to us that we can often take it for granted-we forget the years it takes us to master it as children. It's much, much harder for computers. We took our first steps understanding and answering questions with voice search in 2008, and the Knowledge Graph in 2012. Just as a child first talks about single items like 'mama' or 'car,' the Knowledge Graph started by providing information on individual entities like 'Barack Obama' or 'Shah Rukh Khan.' We graduated to answering simple questions about those entities, so you could ask 'How old is Stan Lee?' or 'What did Leonardo da Vinci invent?' We soon got a little smarter, so if you asked 'What are the ingredients for a screwdriver?' we understood you meant the cocktail and not the tool. Now we're 'growing up' just a little more. The Google app is starting to truly understand the meaning of what you're asking," stated Google in an official blog post.
