New Delhi : Google, the tech giant has unfolded certain changes with the aim to make search engine more visual and intuitive. It seems that the search results can answer questions before being asked.

Google is all set to pursue its 20-year-old mission to organize the world's information and make it accessible to anyone. Accordingly, it is using Artificial intelligence and machine learning as core drivers to achieve its goal. 

Its search engine is strongly focusing on mobile use and appears to be growing more like Facebook, encouraging users to explore topics of interests with increased emphasis on photos and videos. Also, the results will be strictly personalized.

"Search is not perfect, and we are under no illusions it is," Gomes said.

"But, you have our commitment that we will make it better every day."

It is likely that the latest changes will shift answers to journeys, offering ways to target queries without knowing what words to use and enhancing image-based searches.

Initially, Google images was redesigned to weave in "Lens" technology that enables queries based on what is pointed out in pictures. The images renovation includes carousels of online video clip highlights exhibited with mobile search query results.

Now, the new 'Activity Cards' will allow users to pick up searches where they left off, thereby, eliminating the need to retrace online steps. The search engine will also let users create ‘Collections’ of online content, and suggest related material that might be of interest.

Report says that Google feed is used by more than 800 million people monthly. Now, it is getting a new name 'Discover' and will come up with increased ability to offer people relevant information they are likely to want but haven't thought to search yet.

The feature was described as "Google search helping you discover new things without a query."

Google said it is also testing out an improvement to its job-related search results that will figure out what skills are needed for such posts and information about how to acquire them.

"Information and language are core to what we are as human beings," Gomes said. "Our work here is never done."
