Google has launched its new search tool, Knowledge Graph that will give direct answers in its results instead of simply providing links in an attempt to improve its core search business. Now, when you search for a popular place, person or thing, a floating panel on the right side of the results page will have a summarized answer for you, along with some related information.

  2. 2. Google’s Knowledge  Graph Debuts 3 circles Google has launched its new search tool, 1 person +1d this Brad Kepler Knowledge Graph that will give direct answers in its results instead of simply providing links in an attempt to improve its core search business. Now, when you...
  3. 3. The Knowledge Graph feature might just be the largest search launch inGoogle’s history. In fact, Google says that this feature has alreadysurpassed the launch of Google News and Google Image in terms ofinformation available on the first day — and it will obviously continue togrow as more collections and relations are being added. And for anonline community that’s getting sick of all the hype on social search,Google’s renewed focus on improving the key search business is arefreshing change.
  4. 4. Google has been working on the Knowledge Graph for the past 2 yearsand have already made a database with 500 million entities and 3.5billion defining connections and attributes like related searches. TheKnowledge Graph draws information from a collection of informationpublicly available from sources like Freebase, Metaweb, Wikipedia,Google Books and World CIA Fact Book, among others.
  5. 5. Norton Scientific Collection reports that Google is not aiming to givefalse information with is Knowledge Graph but to actually drawrelationships between objects in an attempt to figure what a userwants to know. For example, if searching for a prominent figure inhistory, the KG may include family details as well as his notableworks and other contributions.
  6. 6. Amit Singhal, Google’s senior vice president of engineering, said in ablog post, “We’re proud of our first baby step—the Knowledge Graph—which will enable us to make search more intelligent, moving us closer tothe ‘Star Trek computer’ that I’ve always dreamt of building.”
  7. 7. The rollout of this new feature will result in users being presented withsummarized information about the query term along with the classic searchresults links.
  8. 8. This is the fulfillment of Google’s previous promise to start employing“semantic” algorithms aiming to improved search through automaticallyconnecting related ideas. Basically, its goal is to offer users contextualizedanswer and more helpful details while anticipating next queries. In short,Knowledge Graph is designed to make users find the exact answers evenmore quickly. Also in the right panel, there will be related links to help usersdiscover other stuff that are connected to their search. It is like making anon-linear association to something that might come up in a conversationamong friends.
  9. 9. This is a feature that has considerable long-term applications foronline search and it is obviously still a work in progress for Google.
