Google Now Lets You Search By Math Formulas
There is pretty much nothing that Google doesn’t allow you to search using its vast storehouse of data. And now it seems, you can add math formulas to the mix.
The actual tool is described as a ‘graphing calculator’ and is aimed at students or just about anyone who needs to tap some mathematical equation or formula. According to Google spokesman, “Students and math lovers can now plot mathematical functions right on the search result page,” and the functionality couldn’t be easier to understand according to him. When asked how people would be able to navigate their way to results, he said that all an individual has to do is “Just type in a function and you’ll see an interactive graph on the top of the search results page”.
Presently the search function is not rolled out on all Google search verticals and people can expect to have full access by the end of next week. This new search functionality is further proof that the years spent gathering data, sifting through it and creating display algorithms can pay off in some way. Now Google has another demographic glued to its homepage. Those worried that the new feature won’t be able to handle certain functionality can rest easy. The graphing calculator can apparently handle everything from trigonometric to exponential and logarithmic compositions.
Not bad for a search engine with such humble beginnings.
