Earlier today, Bing revealed that its prediction engine successfully predicted the NBA Finals. The search engine was able to correctly predict the winner, the Golden State Warriors. The search engine correctly predicted that the 12 (out of fifteen) series, which is indeed pretty impressive.

For those unfamiliar, the Bing prediction engine works pretty simply by using the teams’ historical performance, match statistics and several other factors to produce the predictions. The prediction engine also powers Cortana’s predictions – that means, Cortana was also able to correctly predict the finals.
