Google’s Knowledge Graph to be available in the Bengali language

Google is introducing its Knowledge Graph in Bengali which will allow users to search in the language. Google Search will also support spell correction for queries.  Knowledge Graph cards in Hindi has been available for some time and it looks like Bengali is the next Indic language to join this. The company has already begun to gradually roll-out the Knowledge Graph in Bengali and will be made available to users around the world.

The Knowledge Graph is used by Google to enhance its search functions results with semantic-search information gathered from a wide variety of sources. It gives users pointed answers and not trillions of webpages to scroll through.

The key difference is that Google search, using the knowledge graph, will show users information about things – landmarks, celebrities, cities, sports teams, buildings, geographical features, movies etc – rather than strings. Knowledge Graph is currently available in 41 languages and maps out more than 1 billion things in the real world and has over 70 billion facts about them.

Google has been increasing its focus on Indic languages.

In April last year, the search engine started to display common health conditions and relevant medical facts as information cards in Hindi or English when a user queries for symptoms or health concerns. It aggregates more than 400 health conditions and will display them through cards when a user queries for an illness or a symptom. The cards will also include relevant images, and can be downloaded as a PDF.

In 2014, Google also started the Indian Language Internet Alliance to increase the amount of content in Indic languages. To begin with, it launched hindiweb.com, a portal that aggregates Hindi content on the web.
