Google Squared

Last month I have posted about Wolfram Alpha, the new search engine that some people believe could become a "Google killer". Now Google has something to put up with Wolfram Alpha, Google Squared, which will appear on Google Labs next month. This new feature will automatically peruse the Internet for the user, searching for research topics and generating a detailed spreadsheet of results. Here's how Google's Matt Cutts explains Google Squared in his blog:

“[I]f you typed in ’small dogs’ then Google would try to return types of small dogs, along with facts like how much they weigh. It’s easy to add a row to the Square, so you could add a row for Lhasa Apso and Google will try to infer the relevant facts from the web. You can also add new columns, e.g. if you type ’energy level’ then Google will look for corroborating facts across the web and try to guess the energy level of each type of dog.”
