Google expands knowledge graph

During May 2012 Google launched knowledge graph in the USA. The Knowledge graph is now available for all English speaking countries of the world. The knowledge graph is a Google initiative to understand the world and people better, in order to be able to provide better search results. Google has also included the ability for your emails to appear as search results in your searches.Google is also adding voice to your searches in order to better understand your intent when you are searching for something.

Amit Singhal, Senior Vice President of Google Search says: ‘Larry Page once described the perfect search engine as understanding exactly what you mean and giving you back exactly what you want. Its very much like the computer I dreamt about as a child growing up in India, glued to our black-and-white TV for every episode of Star Trek. I imagined a future where a starship computer would be able to answer any question I might ask, instantly. Today, we’re closer to that dream than I ever thought possible during my working lifeand here are some of the latest steps we’re taking today to make search even more intelligent’
