RankBrain meaning in English


RankBrain is a machine learning-based AI system that Google reportedly uses to help process its search results.

Announced in October 2015, RankBrain is thought to still be one of the primary parts of Google's core algorithm to interpret search queries and deliver results that best match the user's intent.

Unlike pre-programmed algorithms, RankBrain can learn and improve over time. It accomplishes this by understanding patterns in user behaviour and interpreting the relevance and meaning of web pages in relation to the search queries.

This learning capability allows RankBrain to handle never-before-seen search queries, which comprise a significant portion of daily searches on Google.
