Google announced a major update on its search app, now it can give answer for more difficult queries.
The app will provide real answers for question instead of just providing web searches in numerous areas.
Ask Google “Who was Dakota Johnson’s mom in the movie?” and you’ll receive a response of Melanie Griffith, Johnson’s real-life mother, rather than Jennifer Ehle, who played the role of the mom in the movie “50 Shades of Grey.” That one’s still tricky for Google because you didn’t specify the name of the film in your question.
“We’re still growing and learning, which means we make mistakes,” Satyajeet Salgar, Product Manager said.
“The Google app is starting to truly 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”, Salgar said.
“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”, he added.
It also has the ability to answer complex combinations where one or more answers are required.
