Google’s Enhanced Search with Lens Solves Math, Physics, and Science Questions

New Google Search Features Empower Users to Tackle STEM Concepts and Visualize Complex Science Topics with Lens

Google is making it easier for users to solve math, physics, and science problems, as well as find information on specific biology and geometry topics through its search engine by leveraging Google Lens.

The tech giant has unveiled new features aimed at simplifying searches related to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). This enhancement promises more precise results, as it acknowledges that there are times when describing exactly what you are looking for can be challenging using only words.

Google has introduced a function that allows users to access information to solve math and physics problems, including calculations and trigonometry. Users can input an equation or integral directly into the search bar, or simply capture a photo of the problem at hand using Google Lens. Following this, a step-by-step explanation of how to solve the problem will be provided.

This feature also extends to geometry problems. Users can inquire about issues such as calculating the area of a triangle by using Google Lens to interpret the visual and textual components of the problem, which then generates an explanation of how to solve it.

This tool is incorporated into Google Lens’s ‘Homework’ mode, but users can also type ‘math solver’ into the search bar to access this feature on their desktops. Furthermore, Google has announced that it will soon be available in the smartphone version of the search engine.

Additionally, Google Search will offer assistance in solving posed problems. Users can directly input a problem statement into the search bar, and based on this input, the search engine will display results and formulas to address the problem.

According to Google, this feature benefits from advances in its large language models and covers “many fundamental topics” taught in secondary education. The idea behind this feature is to help users “identify known and unknown values” within a problem, as well as understand “which formulas to use and when.”

Interactive 3D Models

In addition to these functionalities, Google has introduced a specific feature to access content related to scientific subjects that require “deep visual understanding,” such as biology.

This function is capable of displaying 3D models of the relevant topic in search results. Users can explore interactive diagrams that provide detailed images and general descriptions of the various parts of the diagram.

As an example, users can search for topics like mitochondria and obtain a diagram with all its particulars for a visual understanding. Google has incorporated over 1,000 topics related to biology, chemistry, physics, and astronomy for these interactive diagram functions.

These new enhancements to Google’s search capabilities aim to make STEM-related tasks more accessible and provide visual clarity on complex scientific topics, reinforcing Google’s commitment to education and user support.
