Google Search's New AI Understands Your Sloppiest Tpyos and Misspellings

The new Search AI also uses context to try to answer questions faster. Google

Your botched Google searches are about to get a lot more precise. Google is update your Search AI with a contextual spell checker, improved search ranking, and a “sub-topic” system that provides specific results for vague search queries.

Google’s improved spell checker improves the accuracy of the “Did you mean” search pop-up. Badly misspelled words should match the word you want to type, even if your search terms are long or complicated. The contextual spell checker shouldn’t make a lot of mistakes because it uses related words and search patterns to determine what you’re trying to search for.

Other improvements to search include improved search rankings and the new subtopic system. Both of these updates scan web pages and articles for information related to your research. A search on “how do I tell if my windows are UV glass” may include a passage from a website, saving you from clicking through to find the answer to your question. Searching for something vague like “best winter boots” activates the subtopic system, which sorts the information into categories such as “best budget option” or “best premium option”.

Google is now rolling out its updated Search AI. You may start to notice more precise search results for niche topics, although only the most careless typists (myself included) will notice Google’s improved spell checking.
