Hi @vignesh.sivakumar,

Athena incorporates Semantic search capabilities that aim to comprehend natural language like a human.
For instance, if you asked someone, “What is the largest mammal?” and followed up with “How big is it?”, they would likely understand that “it” refers to the largest mammal, which is a blue whale. Athena can perform this type of search.
Here’s an example: after asking for revenue, I posed a natural language query “Show it to me by customers” to Athena, and it responded accurately.
Currently, Athena can only understand basic semantic phrases like “show it” and “how about.”
