Algorithm meets Entertainment

Bing and Microsoft Research teamed up to create a constantly updated Oscar predictions list, whichย eventuallyย came out pretty accurate.

Microsoft sees this as a chance to prove it’s ability to analyse and manipulate data.

Of the top 24 categories at this yearโ€™s Oscars, Microsoftโ€™s Bing correctly predicted 20 winners for an 83 percent accuracy score, including all of the most prestigious Academy Award picks.
