To ensure users are comfortable with the search results they receive from Bing, the search engine will now show multiple perspectives and multiple sources, culled from a list of preapproved news sources.
Microsoft is boosting its everyday AI applications for Office 365, Cortana, and Bing, the company announced Wednesday.
Microsoft also announced a partnership with Reddit to include Reddit information to Bing search results.
Meanwhile, Microsoft is working on a way for its Bing search engine to show you results from varying viewpoints.
Office 365 is built on Microsoft's powerful platform for AI that makes advancements in machine learning and AI accessible to every developer and organization.
Talking about the new features is Microsoft's AI and Research group program manager Kristina Behr, who explained, "AI has come a long way in the ability to find information, but making sense of that information is the real challenge".
Microsoft provides more AI power to Bing search engine.
These new features will be rolling out over coming days and weeks. For instance, if you are using Cortana to book tickets to an event, Cortana might suggest that you add it to your calendar as well.
Microsoft has also landed its first partnership to integrate Cortana into a third-party Android launcher. Insights in Excel will roll out in a preview to Office insiders this month.
Additionally, the Seeing AI app is getting new features like currency, handwriting, colour recognition, and light detection that will be available for users across 35 countries. Much like how Google is using machine learning in the same way. The company mentioned that it is using machine-reading comprehensions that run on Project Brainwave on Intel field programmable gate arrays to read, analyze and understand all the information before delivering the right answer across multiple sources.
Microsoft Word will also get a new feature called Acronyms. Today, we're expanding this set of AI-powered tools by bringing Cortana to the Outlook mobile app to help users stay on top of their day. It will take into account your current location, the event location and real-time traffic information and provide both public transit and driving directions.
Outlook will notify you when it's time to leave for your next event. Text in image search is now rolling out and will be available to all Office 365 commercial subscribers by the end of December.
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.
