  • Jack Menzel: Wouldn’t it be amazing if Google could understood that the words that you use

  • when you're doing a Search, well they aren't just words, they refer to real things in the

  • world? That a building is a building and an animal is an animal and that they're not just

  • random strings of characters. If we could understand that those words are talking about

  • those real world things, then we can do a better job of getting you just the content

  • that you want off the web. Shashi Thakur:The way Google is trying to build information

  • about real world connections is by building a Knowledge Graph. The Knowledge Graph is

  • about collecting information about objects in the real world. The object could be a person,

  • could be a book, could be a movie, and many other types of things. For example, for a

  • famous person, we collect relevant data about them, such as their date of birth, or how

  • tall they are. We can also connect that person to closely related objects in the Knowledge

  • Graph. Jack Menzel: Let's say you're interested in Renaissance painters. Or how about how

  • many women have won the Nobel prize? By understanding the relationships between thingsbe it between

  • painters and the Renaissance or women and the Nobel prizeGoogle can do a better job

  • of understanding what it is exactly you're searching for. Shashi Thakur: One of the first

  • features we're going to introduce which applies the Knowledge Graph is a panel next to the

  • web results. Emily Moxley: When you have a question to answer, others may have come to

  • Google already to search for the same thing. Google can jumpstart your research process

  • by combining the information that others found useful with the information in the: All of

  • the collective human wisdom that comes through our Search Engine, what people are searching

  • for tells us what are the interesting things to put in our database. Shashi Thakur: Take

  • Leonardo da Vinci. Let’s say you wanted to learn about the most important Renaissance

  • painters. You might search forLeonardo da Vincibecause he’s the only Renaissance

  • painter you know about. Now, youll see information right in the search results that

  • helps you explore the broader topic of Renaissance painters. Youll see some of the most famous

  • paintings from that era, like the Mona Lisa, and discover other painters of that time,

  • like Michelangelo and Raphael. Johanna Wright: We're in the early phases of moving from being

  • an Information engine to becoming a Knowledge engine and these enhancements are one step

  • in that direction. Shashi Thakur: As we grow the Knowledge Graph and make it larger and

  • richer, we are really excited at the opportunity we have to understand more of the user's queries,

  • to understand more about the information that's out there on the web, and intelligently connect

  • the two to each other.
