Google Search just got a hell of a lot more advanced

1 min read

Google Search has always been impressive in the way that it’s able to intelligently understand your questions, but it’s still not even close to being as intelligent as a human. Even so, Google is continuously updating its search engine to make it as smart as possible, and it’s latest update may be the most impressive yet. According to Google, it’s search engine is now capable of understanding complex, multi-part questions in a way that no other search engine can. 

The next time you’re wondering which U.S. President was in office when the Angels won the World Series — or something equally as random — the Google app shouldn’t have any issues helping you find the answer. Google on Monday said its search app is getting better at understanding complex, multi-part questions, and is now starting to understand the meaning of what you’re asking. “We can now break down a query to understand the semantics of each piece … so we can get at the intent behind the entire question,” Product Manager Satyajeet Salgar wrote in a blog post. “That lets us traverse the Knowledge Graph much more reliably to find the right facts and compose a useful answer. And we can build on this base to answer harder questions.” Using the example above, Google would recognize that you were talking about the Angels baseball team, not a spiritual being, and look up World Series winners by year to find that the Anaheim, Calif. team won in 2002. The app would then reference a list of Presidents in the country you identified — the U.S. — and tell you that the U.S. President in office when the Angels won the World Series in 2002 was George W. Bush.
