Yandex, one of Russia’s biggest Internet companies and a popular search engine, introduced a new deep neural search algorithm this week named “Korolev.” RBTH tested it against Google to find out which search engine is better at understanding user requests.

Yandex said it’s new algorithm, “Korolev,” is better at understanding user intent because it examines the entirety of web pages. Named after the Soviet rocket scientist, Sergei Korolev, it is not the first neural search algorithm developed by Yandex. In 2016, the company introduced “Palekh,” but it could analyze only page headlines. So, we decided to compare the results users get with Google and those with Yandex’s new algorithm.
