Microsoft makes a bet on cloud-based AI with Bing template
Microsoft is using its new Bing search engine to make bets on cloud AI.
Bing is currently only a part of Microsoft’s search platform, but it has been a major part of the company’s search experience for years, and it is an area where it has a lot of confidence in its ability to deliver.
Bing has been on Microsoft’s roadmap since the launch of Windows 8.1 in 2011, and since then Microsoft has had to deal with increasing competition from Google and other search engines.
In 2016, Bing had the highest ranking of any search engine in the world, and its dominance has been steadily increasing over the past two years.
Now, Microsoft has the opportunity to make a bet that it can do better than Bing, and the company is betting that its new search engine is better than any other.
“We’re very proud to be able to help build a search platform that’s as good as Bing, with the right tools, at a fraction of the price,” says Adam Jonas, Microsoft vice president of Bing and Bing Search.
“With Bing, we’ve seen our users spend over 100 hours per month on the Bing search experience.”
Jonas explained that Bing has a few key strengths, such as its ability “to search large datasets, including billions of pages, without any human interaction.”
Bing’s Search Engine, however, has a different set of skills that are important for building better search experiences.
The first and most obvious is that Bing does not require a browser to run.
“There are some things we’re going to be doing that are not on our platform,” Jonas explained.
“And those things are things like our own search engine that we built.”
Microsoft also plans to make Bing available in a cloud-powered version of Bing that will not require an Internet connection.
Jonas said that this is an important point because “there’s a lot that is going to change” in the cloud, and “there are many cloud-connected search products that we’re trying to make more competitive than Bing.”
The Bing Search Engine is currently available for Windows 10 PCs, but Jonas said it is expected to launch for other operating systems in the future.
Microsoft is also making Bing available for mobile devices, with a focus on “search apps” that are intended to help users “go directly from a mobile device to search Bing.”
These “search app” versions of Bing will likely be more like Google’s search, and Microsoft will be focusing on making them more relevant to mobile devices.
Microsoft has also said that it will offer Bing in other languages, but has not confirmed that this will be the case.
The Bing search app will also be used by Microsoft’s own apps, including Office, Outlook, and OneDrive.
This could include the ability to have Microsoft’s services show up on Google’s services as well.
Microsoft will also build new search experiences in Bing that include additional search features that could help users find and use Microsoft’s products.
“As part of our strategy to get search and search-related technologies to be more broadly available, we are also planning to bring Bing into new languages, including Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, and French,” Jonas said.
Microsoft also said it will build a new way for users to search for Microsoft services, and these will be available to all users.
Microsoft’s new Bing Search app is expected in the next few months, and Jonas said he expects the new search experience to be available in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.
