Just when Microsoft tried to revive Bing search with more new techniques, Google has rolled out a new features that beats down Bing even before they release the new update. This new feature is called Knowledge Graph. It’s actually a new system that makes searching more easier, giving out a brief explanation about your search related subject, without having to click on any links or go though any web pages
Lets say you search for a movie. For instance, up there, I searched for Prometheus and came up with all the information about the upcoming Prometheus movie in the side bar on the right. Description from Wikipedia, along with release date, information about the cast, links to other related search and many more. It actually makes searching more easy and also saves up time. I don’t know how Google came up with this idea, but its brilliant.
“Google’s Knowledge Graph isn’t just rooted in public sources such as Freebase, Wikipedia and the CIA World Factbook. It’s also augmented at a much larger scale—because we’re focused on comprehensive breadth and depth. It currently contains more than 500 million objects, as well as more than 3.5 billion facts about and relationships between these different objects. And it’s tuned based on what people search for, and what we find out on the web.”
I’m really starting to feel sorry for Bing. By the time they reach the level of Google today, Google will be way past inventing time traveling. Check out the video to see the intro.
