Beyond content searching: Google’s Knowledge Graph

Google started to roll out the Knowledge Graph, intended to be more about things rather than just strings. Delivering and disambiguating related content based on semantic network associations sounds great, if this really is a step forward to move out of the filter-bubble remains to be seen. Overall, it seems to be related to the idea of a conceptual graph, and wikipedia forms a big chunk of the underlying knowledge-base.
