Last week, we reported that Microsoft has added World Cup Football predictions to Cortana. Back in April, Microsoft Bing team started an experiment to predict an outcome of a given event like The Voice, American Idol and Dancing With The Stars. It was quite successful and Bing team announced that they are continuing the experiment with predictions for outcomes of sporting events like the world cup football matches happening right now in Brazil. Since Cortana’s backend is based on Bing, Cortana team added the ability to answer questions on world cup winning possibilities. For example, you can ask Cortana “Who will win Team A or Team B?” she will provide a response on who she thinks might win the game.
So far, Cortana is unbeaten with her predictions by selecting Holland, Costa Rica, Brazil, Columbia, and France, as winners. As you can see in the image above, Cortana says Belgium will win against the US later today. Millions of fans in the US is expecting the opposite, lets see who wins.
