I saw this today and thought it’s kind of new, to me at least. Google seem to be trying to build an AI that can understand and answer your query.
The query seems to be able to best answer birth and death dates by analyzing popular sites content. You may try things like “Larry Page was born on”, “Halo 3 release date”, “Brave release date“, which is June 22, 2012. Mark your calendars. Perhaps the birth dates is not new, but I hardly doubt the cause of death isn’t. Anyone noticed it before? Any more neat tricks you know of?
