What is a Knowledge Panel? – Knowledge Panels on Google
Table of Contents
The Knowledge panel is automatically generating, and the information that appears in them comes from various sources across the web.
In some cases, we may collaborate with data partners, who provide reliable information on specific topics. Such as movies or music, combine it with other public web sources.
About knowledge panel
Knowledge Dashboards are boxes of information that appear in Google when searching for entities (people, places, organizations, or things) in the Knowledge Graph.
They intend to provide you with a summary of information on a specific topic based on Google’s interpretation of the web’s related content.
We also know that entities (such as prominent individuals or creators of a television show) whose information includes in knowledge panels have their accreditation. We offer methods for you to submit your comments directly.
Therefore, some of the information that appears could also correspond to verified entities that suggested changes to their panels’ content.
The images displayed in the knowledge panel can come from different sources. For example, individuals who claimed their boards selected a featured image from those available on the web.
- Other photos (especially when a collection of them is displayed) are previewed for entity-related Google
- Images results and automatically fetched from across the web.
- Knowledge Dashboards update automatically as information on the web changes.
Still, Google also considers changes based on two primary resources. Direct suggestions from the entities represented in the Knowledge Dashboard and general feedback.
Note: If you are not the official representative of an entity, you can use the link to submit comments in the lower right corner of a knowledge panel and suggest changes for review.
Knowledge Panels on Google
When Google presented the knowledge graph, it also gave us the images section and the possibility of using other types of rich content (video, audio, etc.)
The Knowledge Panels and lists of images are shown in the carousels at the top of the pages in response to a query. For example, “What is the tallest building in the world?”
- A patent granted to Google a couple of weeks ago describes how Google processes search engine queries and displays answers to questions using the Knowledge Panel and including images.
- It was precisely on their page about the Knowledge Panel where they introduced carousels:
- You may have noticed that some categorized results often appear when searching for images. Such is the case with the set of products that appear at the top of a search. For “expensive,” “beautiful,” and “luxury.”
Google now seems to have a better understanding of images and their peculiarities. One of the precursors of this system is listed in the patent mentioned in the document.
They are learning Semantic Representations of Objects and their Parts that much more information about images is being collecting and understood.
The summary of that document raises the ideas that we present below:
- We design an architecture model that can be complete under proxy supervision by combining standard image annotation (from ImageNet) with part-based semantic relationships within the tag (from WordNet).
- The model is designing to set up similarities between the object image and the object label. And similarities between the object label and the object part label in a single system.
- Experiments performed with our combined data and a precisely annotated evaluation demonstrate the utility of our study.
- We do not know if this experiment has brought about the improvement. Here we see in the images selected for the Carousels or the Knowledge Panel.
- We also don’t understand how images are ranking in some image searches.
