- Look ahead with Bing
Bing uses search, social, and other relevant data to make intelligent predictions about upcoming events, like sports games, reality TV shows, and more.
- Behind the predictions
Bing Predicts was created to show that trending searches and social media topics—and the public sentiment towards those topics—improves predictive analytics. Bing applies machine-learning web data to make informed predictions about various events.
- EntertainmentFor reality TV shows like “The Voice” and “Dancing with the Stars”—and for award shows like the Emmys and Academy Awards—web and social signals highly correlate with viewer and academy member voting patterns. Bing taps into these signals and other historical and social data to predict show winners.
- SportsPredicting events like the NFL season and World Cup requires evaluating player and team stats, tournament trends and game history, and game location. By adding the “wisdom of the crowd” to this statistical model, Bing Predicts has an advantage over prediction and gambling markets.
- PoliticsMany voters use the web to research current candidates and issues. Bing Predicts uses this anonymized and aggregated data, as well as demographics, poll stats, and historical voting patterns to determine which candidate is in the lead, and where the public stands on political issues.
- Business predictions
The data and technology that power our political, entertainment, and sports predictions can now be used by Microsoft enterprise customers. Cortana Intelligence with Bing Predicts can help companies improve demand forecasting, gain greater insights on ad campaigns, and determine public impression on their consumer products.
