Microsoft Adds Conversation Style Web Searches In Bing

Bing Conversational 1
Bing already allows you to ask a question and get instant answers. For example, “who is the President of the United States” or “the tallest building in the world”, will give you Barack Obama and Burj Khalifa as answers. Microsoft is combining conversational understanding with their knowledge repository containing information on billions of people, places and things, you can dive and learn more about a topic or interest.

With today’s update, apart from the answer you get directly in the search results, Bing will also continue the conversation.  For example, you can ask “who is the president of the united states”, we will show you the answer.  From there you might ask, “who is his wife” or “how tall is he.”   Bing maintains the context and keeps the conversation moving forward.

    This is great, so far Bing has been bad in finding associations, for example on Google related images bring up related search-terms, on Bing they don’t, I hope to see this fixed soon as well… :-D

      These are people who think google is the best and they’re making themselves slave of it.

    Not here in UK yet, they really need to address this and deploy updates globally.

    That first gif should carry with it an epilepsy warning.

    Other than that interesting addition, not sure I’ve ever used it on any search engine however.
