Google Talks about Knowledge Graph and What It Means for Search

Google has announced changes to its search it is calling Knowledge Graph. The changes are interesting and consist of three major modifications. The first is intended to help you find the right thing when you're searching for a term is ambiguous. Google says search results will return listings, and on the right side of the screen will be a place where the user can choose between different meanings from ambiguous term to get more details.

Google is also now offering summary data about famous people that will be shown on the right side of the screen. For instance if you search for Marie Curie it would show you when she was born, when she died, who she was married to, and other pertinent details at a glance. The new search also brings up more pertinent data in the right side panel to allow you to go deeper. For instance, if you search for Matt Groening, details about the Simpsons would be offered on the right side of the screen.
