Bing is a part of newly formed AI & Research Organization at Microsoft.
About Microsoft AI & Research Org:
AI & Research is a new group formed at Microsoft solving to accelerate our innovation in AI, and to enable Microsoft to create truly intelligent systems and products for our customers.
When we launched Bing on June 1st of 2009, we changed search forever and created a foundational technology for AI. Bing’s market share has grown incredibly since the launch, and we serve over a third of U.S. queries, and power the partners Yahoo, Apple, Amazon and AOL for search.
Our investments in ML and AI technologies in Bing have been heavily leveraged throughout the company from Azure taking advantage of AutoPilot, Cosmos and the Edge, to our new investments in Conversation-as-a-Platform (CaaP) where we are leading the industry.
The largest example of using the Bing technologies was the creation of Cortana – our personal digital assistant, who has answered 12 billion questions for 130 million users. Cortana got us into the digital agent game. Watch this Satya's Ignite keynote on how we’re democratizing AI using Cortana.
