Semantic Experience is a new website Google has launched to take researchers to higher levels. This website indicates how Google has taken wordplay serious and how they are aiding researchers to get things easier and faster.

This Semantic Search is based on searching meaning rather than on keywords and phrases. It is developed with machine learning as it uses natural language understanding of words and phrases.

google semantris game

Semantris is amusing but difficult to just play once you will want to visit, the site, you can play for points. The game is all about word association where you will play within two modes, one being Arcade and the other being Blocks of which you can try each.

This game also makes you aware how Google researchers have learned to predict semantically related words.

When you enter a word phrase, the game ranks all of the words on-screen, scoring them based on how well they respond to what you typed.

You can select words that are alike, opposite or neighboring concepts. This can be used not necessarily generating of synonyms, but to know different kinds of words and their respective contest in which they fit.

Talk to Books

talk to books

Talk to Books is designed to be a useful tool that can help people find books. Talk to Books allow users to enter a natural language phrase into a text box and the system will search for similar phrases, showing users which books contain them.

Maybe you have a research question but of yet, no verbatim quotation to go by, no book title to go by, no authors to go by, just the research question, meanwhile you need to know about the books which relates to the question.

Talk to Books is an entirely new way to explore books by starting at a sentence level, rather than the author or topic level.

Let say; you make a statement or ask a question and the tool finds the sentences in books that respond with no dependence on keyword matching, in this sense you are talking to the book and that is exactly how Talk to Books work.

You will get responds, in each case, you will choose to read them or not.

There are no predefine rules that bound the relationship between what you put in and the results you get.

For instance; when you ask ‘can trees have consciousness?’ Talk to Books returns a list of books that include information on that specific question.
