Google’s AI Could Revolutionize Search

Written by 

If you have a question, you know you can feed it into a Google search box and get an answer. But new artificial intelligence being developed by Google Research could take that to the next level. Called “Talk to Books,” the tech lets users type in a statement or question, at which point it searches books to find whole sentences that relate to the words you typed.

This may seem like the keyword matching that powers Google’s standard search, but it’s more advanced than that. Talk to Books relies on A.I. for its searches and responses. The system has been fed conversation-like pairs of sentences by the billions. The technology has the sophistication to realize that some words mean the same thing, which allows it to fill in the blanks when you aren’t 100 percent certain what a text originally said.

In addition to Talk to Books, Google’s research division is also working on Semantris, a Tetris-like experiment that demonstrates how it can match two related words. The technology could be used in other applications to bring Talk to Books-level functionality to the tools people use every day. One module has already been released on TensorFlow, where developers can find it and use it.
