Company Google recently introduced a new service that can significantly improve the process of searching on the Internet - Knowledge Graph. It is a system that tracks and analyzes relationships between concepts, people, places, etc., its main purpose is to improve search results. There are already 500 million objects in the system and thousands of connections established between them.
It is assumed that the answers of such a system will be more “smart”, deeper. And also that it will take much less time to search now. The developers claim that the project is an attempt to search not just by individual words, but by their meaning in the real world. The words chosen as the slogan of the project are: things not strings - “things, not lines”. Knowledge Graph is an attempt to look into the future, using the collective intelligence of users to the maximum, at a time when search engines learn to “think” the way people do.
When performing a search, the user will immediately be provided with interesting information about the subject of his research. On the search page in a new window, the most interesting facts will be displayed, their set will be based on what was already in the requests of other users, what information they found necessary and interesting.
The Knowledge Graph will also help you determine exactly what you are looking for by highlighting only what you need to find from all the meanings of the word. The system analyzes relationships between concepts to provide search results not only with specific phrases on pages, but also with deeper connections of a concept or phenomenon - so you can find what you need, even giving a rough query. Gradually, the system becomes available these days for American users and so far only in English.
