At Build developer conference last week, Microsoft revealed the Cortana digital assistant powered by Bing. Cortana learns about your preferences and interests and the Bing platform behind it wht that makes this possible, earned through years of machine learning and big data experience doing web search.
Microsoft is bringing this personalized experience to the web starting today. Microsoft is unveiling a set of personalized cards on the Bing homepage that will help you keep track of things that matter to you. Set up your interests in Bing settings and you will start seeing personalized news, weather, flights, and stocks with more to come – all as part of the search experience.
Sign in to your Microsoft account and set-up your interests to let Bing know what it should track. Then, when it’s appropriate, Bing will let you know if for example your stock changes or flight is delayed. The best part? As long as you’re signed in, Bing will remember your interests and notify you, as appropriate, across a range of Bing-powered Microsoft services, such as Cortana and the Bing Sports app, for example.
