This week the folks at Microsoft responsible for bringing next-generation or otherwise awesome oddities to Cortana have done so. They’ve brought a feature that, even if you don’t watch football in the USA, you can use. You can use it and feel like a pro when you’ve correctly predicted that the Minnesota Vikings will win the Superbowl.
That’s right! Cortana will soon be able to predict football games in the NFL. Not only will you be able to do this with Cortana on your Windows Phone device, you’ll be able to do it with Bing on the web. Head to Bing and you’ll be able to ask: who will win?
Bing will know.
Or at least Bing and its best buddy Cortana will be able to give you an educated guess. Based on previous scores of games between the two playing in a game, statistics, and stadium conditions, Microsoft will predict your next game.
Bing and Cortana – using Bing data – are also able to predict football (or futball) of the international kind. Cortana predicted “a near perfect bracket” earlier this year – can it do the same for the pigskin? We shall see!
