Dear Readers,

Have you ever wondered about the uncanny ability of google to complete your sentences even before you complete them? Or the fact that Google or any other search engine can comprehend a sentence’s meaning and provide precise responses to the featured excerpts. It appears that Google uses mystical means to “think” and exercise psychic powers. However, this phenomenon is just a byproduct of Google’s highly developed AI-powered search engine, which uses semantic search to generate results.

Do you want to learn this magic trick used by search engines? Then put your time to use because Analytics Vidhya is back with another DataHour to brush up your skills with the industry expert Nils Reimers.
