BERT (Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers) is a state-of-the-art natural language processing (NLP) model developed by Google. It is trained on a large amount of text data to understand the context and meaning of words in a sentence.

BERT incorporates a transformer architecture that enables it to analyze words in relation to all other words in a sentence, rather than analyzing them one by one. This bidirectional approach helps the model understand the context and nuances of language better.

Regarding its impact on search results, BERT has significantly improved Google's understanding of user search queries. It enables Google to better match search queries with relevant web pages by understanding the intent behind the query, even when the wording is ambiguous or the search terms are uncommon.

BERT allows search engines to decipher context-specific meanings of words, understand nuances in language, and comprehend the relationships between different words in a search query. This improves the accuracy of search results, providing users with more relevant and precise information based on their search intent.
