Google gets a bit smarter, can now understand more complex questions

Googe announced its mobile search app has evolved and is now able to break down a search query to understand the semantics of each piece to understand the intent behind the entire question.

This will enable you to ask the search engine questions like “What are the largest cities in Iowa by area?” and “What songs did Taylor Swift record in 2014?”, or even complex combinations like “What are some of Seth Gabel's father-in-law's movies?” or “Who was the U.S. President when the Angels won the World Series?”.
We’re still growing and learning, which means we make mistakes. Ask Google “Who was Dakota Johnson's mom in the movie?”, and we’ll respond with the movies of Dakota Johnson’s real-life mother Melanie Griffith, not the actor Jennifer Ehle who played Anastasia’s mother Carla in the 50 Shades of Grey movie. (Hey, that one’s tricky even for people!)

But the next time you’re curious about something, ask the Google app, and know that we’re working hard on understanding your questions better so that we can find the answer to whatever you’re looking for.
