Knowledge Graph-Mapping Google from ‘Search Engine’ to ‘Knowledge EngineSo finally, a search engine goes human being! Google rolls out their latestfeature to the search results.It’s nothing but a “Knowledge Graph”. What is knowledge graph? How it affectupcoming searches?Google can realize what you are searching for, what kind of results that you areexpecting from it, what other information that you like to know etc.You might be wondering how it could be, correct? That’s what a ‘GoogleKnowledge Graph does’Google introduces a new concept – ‘a graph’ that populate as a panel on theright side of your search results soon after you type your query string.It displays related information of your search query with a set of small images.This makes you more convenient to choose what you are looking for.
Knowledge graph will collect the information about objects. These objects canbe a person, animal or anything else that can have a mass.For example: if you type “education”, then it’s an object in terms of Google, butnot a simple text or a query string. Word “education” has a meaning. Google wastrying to find the meaning of these kinds of search terms.According to the ‘knowledge graph’, Google will show you types ofeducation, history, types of education, top universities, various types of educationcourses and related things one by one.All you have to do is just a click on the related information that displayed on thegraph and hence you can move to that particular information. Therefore, once youclick on the ‘universities’, you can see all the universities and a new knowledgegraph of term ‘universities’. Here term ‘universities’ is another object thatconnected to object ‘education’.It contains more related information to it with images. This is how informationconnects to each other. By doing so, you can discover new related informationthat you never known before. That’s why this ‘graph’ called ‘knowledge graph’.
What Next?All we have to do is, just wait and watch how Google will succeed in implementing thisin normal searches. How successfully they will match or relate things to the search system, what kind ofrelationship they will introduce to connect between information etc.At present, this new search hit only in Google US, smart phones and tablets. Google willslowly rolls out this project across the world soon.Google says it has compiled over 3.5 billion facts that include information about therelationship between 50 million entities or things across the globe.Summary:Hence, if I search for “TITANIC”, Google will show me a set of options to decide myselfwhether I am looking for ‘a ship’ or our ‘Oscar winning movie’. How cool this stuff hah JSo what if I type “Me” or “I” ???? That’s Google’s Problem!!!!!!
