Det är inte längre svårt att sia om framtiden!

Fråga Bing


One of the most interesting aspects of search engines is their ability
to process trillions of signals to reflect what is happening in the
real world. For instance, during the presidential elections, Bing
experiences a surge of positive and negative queries about the
presidential candidates from different parts of the U.S. Taking this
model even further, teams within Bing have been experimenting with
useful ways that we can harness the power of Bing to model outcomes of
events. This could be anything from an election or sporting event to
whether an actor will win the People’s Choice Award.

Today we are bringing these insights directly to our search results
pages. Based on a variety of different signals including search
queries and social input from Facebook and Twitter, we are unveiling
an experiment we’ve built to give you our prediction of the outcome of
a given event. For example, our first iteration, live on
today, attempts to predict which contestants are most likely to be
eliminated or move on to the next round of voting shows like The
Voice, American Idol andDancing With The Stars.
