Bing AI features add Reddit posts, multiple perspectives to search results

Microsoft announces AI updates in its products

Users can now search for images within images - and even buy items they find there, such as jewelry worn by a celebrity.

Bing's new updates are created to boost confidence in users that search results are correct and that they need not click on multiple links to validate the information themselves.

Microsoft also announced a partnership with Reddit to include Reddit information to Bing search results.

Calling out some of these behind-the-scenes upgrades helps Microsoft demonstrate its unique attributes, and thus relevance, among the competing AI-based platforms of Amazon, Apple, and Google.

Another new Cortana feature will be skills chaining, which will suggest other skills that build on ones you already use.

Microsoft is now integrating additional artificial intelligence (AI) technology into its search results and into Office 365. Microsoft's partnership with Reddit will benefit developers by bringing the Reddit data and API to Power BI, helping get a comprehensive business module to utilize Microsoft's Artificial Intelligence. The productivity suite has been updated with a ton of features including Insights in Excel-a new service that is claimed to automatically highlight patterns from the data making it easier to analyse.

Cortana will be able to sort emails based on importance and summarize the most important ones, then provide an update during a commute. For example, if you use the assistant to buy tickets, it will suggest adding the event to your calendar, according to the release.

Microsoft tapped Reddit, which has a huge library of content produced from 330 million users - many of whom are constantly debating various topics.

Insights is powered by machine learning and helps users identify trends, outliers, and other useful visualisations. The new features should roll out over the next few weeks to months. Leaning on machine learning, Acronyms will help people understand shorthand used in their workplace by searching for definitions and terms found in emails and documents. The CM Launcher with Cortana integration is now available in beta. Acronyms will begin rolling out to Word Online for Office 365 commercial subscribers in 2018.

Microsoft is also expanding its AI-powered tools in Outlook with the introduction of its digital assistant into the mobile app with its new "time to leave" functionality.

Outlook will notify you when it's time to leave for your next event. It will take into account your current location, the event location and real-time traffic information and provide both public transit and driving directions.

Earlier this year, we introduced the ability for OneDrive and SharePoint to automatically recognize the content within images and detect whiteboards, screenshots, receipts, and more.
