Google Research division of the search giant has been working extensively on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and rolled out Semantic Experiences, which are websites with interesting activities that demonstrate AIs’ ability to understand how we speak.

According to a report by Engadget, the development in word vector, an AI-training model that enables algorithms to learn relationships between words based on actual language usage, led to the advancement in natural language processing over the past few year.

“Talk to Books” is a new way to explore books that starts at a sentence level. This allows you to enter a sentence or ask a question and the tool will find sentences in books that respond to your question. There is no dependence on keyword matching according to Google.

Google says that once you ask a question using the tool it searches all the sentences in over 100,000 books to find sentences that respond to your input using the semantic meaning at the sentence level. Google says there are no predefined rules that bind the relationship between what you type in and results you gain, HotHardWare reports.

Google Research Director of Engineering Ray Kurzweil and Product Manager Rachel Bernstein said the system does not depend on keyword matching. They trained its AI by feeding it a “billion conversation-like pairs of sentences,” so it can learn to identify what a good response looks like.
