Structured web data enables us to communicate to search engine algorithms the things that humans understand implicitly. Using, over 12 million sites are already enabling their pages in this way, and as this onward drive continues, a new web is emerging: The Web of Entities. Search Engine Knowledge Graphs use these entities to power new contextual applications and capabilities. By mapping the entity types identified in user questions and queries, to matching instances in their knowledge graphs, applications can be created that provide seamless customer interactions and experiences. But where next? The exponentially growing Web of Entities has the potential to lead the way to, and set the context for, Cognitive Computing, using pattern recognition to mimic the way the human brain works.
