  • The challenge:How to improve the way users retrieve information from the web is actually limited by Goolge’s own search interface. Google's simple search box interface has successfully trained most users to abstract complex queries into few keywords, and as result, much context is lost as we are searching.In some way, Google Instant was a way to mitigate this problem by previewing results per keywords, but the search experience is still limited to a keyword index, regardless the interface Google wraps around with.Moving forward, what's interesting is how AI can help search - & NOT to discard the constraints of human language. In ML, constraints are good, and for searchEnd of day, human being still converse in sentences, not keywords.
