SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Google is introducing a new tool designed to make its search engine smarter.
The new feature debuting Wednesday is called the "Knowledge Graph." It draws from a Google-built database of more than 500 million people, places and other commonly requested things to provide a summary of vital information alongside the main search results.
Google Inc. created the Knowledge Graph in an attempt to provide answers as quickly and concisely as possible so users don't have to sift through a hodgepodge of Web links displayed on the main results page
The nuggets of information will appear in boxes to the right of the main search results. Google will gradually roll out the new feature for its logged-in users in the U.S. before extending it to a wider audience.
