Amit Singhal, Google’s senior VP of search, today
announced that Google’s Knowledge Graph will start
exposing a number of statistics as graphs on the
search results pages today. Google is also adding
Polish, Turkish, Simplified Chinese and Traditional
Chinese to its lineup of supported Knowledge Graph languages. With regard to the statistics, Singhal said the system
will also try to predict what your next question will be
and add related statistics to the graphs. Say you want
to know more about how many people live in India,
Google may also show you stats for China. Singhal also recapped a number of Knowledge Graph
features that expose users personal information – the
kind of information Google Now would usually expose,
too. These are currently available in beta and uses
can sign up for it here. The Knowledge Graph, Singhal said, has enabled
Google to move beyond keywords. “It allowed us to
answer questions we couldn’t previously answer.”
Clearly, Google has been investing heavily in this
technology and the company also today announced
its new voice-enabled conversational search feature that makes it even easier to find answers from the
Knowledge Graph.
