Google (GOOG) is rolling out a search engine overhaul that provides more semantic information about query subjects within search result pages. The change comes two months after Google promised a revamp that would make its results more in-line with "how humans understand the world." Bing (MSFT) has long promoted its inclusion of semantic info, and so has Baidu (BIDU), via its Box Computing platform.

  • Google implements semantic search given outdated web 2.0 structure. Some of us out here think the semantic web is a needed morph that will specify ontologies in the link structure, and at some point even include dynamic links. It is notable though that google search with its embedded ai features outperforms curated knowledge bases at finding information, even in its current state. Mr. Wolfram's "eternal truths" have yet to answer all the universe's questions.

  • Just one guy's meaningless opinion,
    but I hate Bing.
    In case you cared,
    now you know.
    I hate Bing.
    I don't hate Microsoft,
    nor love Google,
    I just hate Bing.


    I believe I have now qualified for the "most useless comment ever."

  • You might hate Bing, but on our ecommerce website hits from Bing have gone from 6% to 11% of the total Y/Y, while Google has dropped 4%.
