Google Search’s Knowledge Graph that powers the Google Now search cards that pop up when you search for certain things will now offer details about common health conditions when you search for them. One in 20 Google searches are for health-related information, says Google.
When you ask Google about common health conditions, you’ll start getting relevant medical facts such as typical symptoms and treatments, details on how common the condition is – whether it’s critical, if it’s contagious, what ages it affects, and more. It will also offer high-quality illustrations for some.
Regarding this on the official Blog, Google Said:
We worked with a team of medical doctors (led by our own Dr. Kapil Parakh, M.D., MPH, Ph.D.) to carefully compile, curate, and review this information. All of the gathered facts represent real-life clinical knowledge from these doctors and high-quality medical sources across the web, and the information has been checked by medical doctors at Google and the Mayo Clinic for accuracy.
That doesn’t mean these search results are intended as medical advice. We know that cases can vary in severity from person to person, and that there are bound to be exceptions. What we present is intended for informational purposes only—and you should always consult a healthcare professional if you have a medical concern.
This feature will roll out out over the next few days starting from the U.S. in English. Google plans to extend this to other parts of the world and cover many more medical conditions soon
Twitter has partnered with Google to display tweets in search results as soon as they are posted on the social networking site, according to reports.
Twitter will give Google access to its firehose, which will ensure that tweets become visible in Google’s search results as soon as they are posted by the microblogging service’s 284 million users. According to reports, the deal doesn’t include any advertising revenue, so Google might pay a flat licensing fee for the data to Twitter. Spokesperson from Twitter and Google didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
In 2009, the microblogging site had struck a deal with Google for access to the social network’s full live stream of user tweets. However the companies didn’t renew the deal after it expired in 2011 when they failed to strike an agreement to extend the licensing agreement.
Twitter, already provides data to Microsoft Corp.’s Bing search service and Yahoo! Inc., in order to draw more people to its site. The company has also announced deals to show advertising in Flipboard Inc.’s mobile application and with Yahoo Japan Corp.
The deal will give Twitter more exposure and an increase in user engagement. In August the site had announced a new feature that would include surface tweets for users from accounts they don’t follow. Last month, the company unveiled a new ‘While you were away’ feature that gives the user a recap of the most important tweets they might have missed. The feature is aimed at drawing users who are infrequent on the social networking site.
