Google’s Search has gotten smarter and can now answer more complex questions with references to time, place, etc.Google’s Inside Search blog posted about the development and notes that the “Google app is starting to truly understand the meaning of what you’re asking.”
According to Google, the app will now break down the query to understand the semantics used in the questions. It can understand superlatives like tallest, largest, etc and you can thus type for questions like “What are the largest cities in Texas” or “What are the largest cities in Iowa by area,” and expect an answer.
Google app will now understand a question that refers to a particular point in time, for example questions like ‘What was the population of India in 1800 or 2001.’
Google also says that search can now understand more complex questions like “What was the US population when Bernie Sanders was born” or “India’s population when Shah Rukh Khan was born?”
