Another addition to what was announced and launched this Sunday are filters on some knowledge graph results.

Here is an example:

Filters Added To Google Knowledge Graph

As you can see, Google added a filter option, which shows various filter options. I used it to show a list of abstract artists in Google.

Not only that, you can also compare two different sets of units in knowledge graph:

Google said, "let's say you want to compare two things: How much saturated fat is in butter versus olive oil? Now you can simply tell Google: “Compare butter with olive oil.” Our new comparison tool gives you new insights by letting you compose your own answer."

Yes, this is much more useful.

You aren't too worried about traffic not going to the webmasters? You know it is being applied to commercial terms already? Although they are still on the cusp of not being commercial but you know Google will have all commercial terms eventually, Google never do things by halves.

Depends, do I like it as a webmaster or as a searcher? :) It depends even on the query.

I understand what you mean but one day when someone types in "Are we going to have a pagerank update?" and instead of SER coming up Google puts up a big knowledge graph with the word "NO" on it. That will be a sad day. Or "what dates are SMX?" and Google puts up a knowledge graph with "Don't bother SEO is dead!" ;)
