Google's New Brain Could Have a Big Impact
Tom Simonite , Technology Review, July 1, 2012.

Google's 'Knowledge Graph' project has a lot of potential, but some problems as well. On the one hand, "The Knowledge Graph can be thought of as a vast database that allows Google's software to connect facts on people, places, and things to one another." On the other hand, "'They've released a deliberately closed solution,' he says, contrasting that with Facebook's own knowledge store known as the Open Graph, a public resource that software can use to access information on music, movies, recipes, and more."
