Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning have become the two pillars on which Google relies heavily upon to make search faster, and more relevant for users.

Google said the new Lens search tools will roll out in the coming weeks. This also works when you're taking up a new hobby or going deeper on a long-time interest.

"It wasn't long ago that if you visited an image's web page, it might be hard to find the specific image you were looking for when you got there". That's just like Lens already does on mobile cameras.

The Images overhaul includes carousels of online video clip highlights displayed with mobile search query results.

Google's activity feed of things it algorithmically thinks you'll like: Discover. Additionally, Discover uses the Full Coverage feature found in Google News to provide a broader picture of a particular topic by providing an "unpersonalized view of events from a range of trusted news sources".

Google is among the tech companies being called upon to better guard against the spread of misinformation - and has also been a target of US President Donald Trump, who added his voice to a chorus of Republicans who contend conservative viewpoints are downplayed in search results.

The feed is renamed Discover, but the premise is the same: Based upon your history, Google will suggest numerous topics for you to click and explore later this year.

In a blog post, Ben Gomes, VP, Search, News and Assistant, at Google said while nearly everything had changed about "technology and the information available to us, the core principles of Search have stayed the same".

The update will also enable users to edit the types of content shown to them by moving a new slider that appears on cards in the feed up and down, indicating whether users would like to see more or less of this type of content.

Below is an example of how to trigger a Google-constructed AMP story on a search for Michael Jordan. The headers are clickable and will take you to additional information on the topic along with an option to start following that topic. As Google puts it - "The new feature will enhance the existing feed experience with newer categories offering users information they are interested in even without a query". You'll be able to hit buttons to see more or less about certain topics from the feed. This makes it easy to revisit past searches and the websites you visited along the way.
