The Week in Business: Microsoft’s Big Bet on A.I.
Microsoft’s Big Bet on A.I.
Microsoft has been investing heavily in artificial intelligence (A.I.) in recent years, and it looks like those efforts are finally paying off. The company’s A.I.-powered chatbot, Bing, was recently pitted against Google’s search engine in a head-to-head competition, and Bing came out on top.
This is a huge win for Microsoft, as it finally gives the company a foothold in the search engine market. For years, Google has dominated this space, but Bing’s superior performance shows that Microsoft is serious about A.I. and can compete with the best of them.
Of course, it’s still early days for Bing, and it remains to be seen how well it will scale. But for now, Microsoft’s A.I. bet is looking like a smart one.
