Cortana does it again! Virtual personal assistant correctly predicts winner of singing competition
Even though Cortana made an impressive (and correct) Super Bowl call, the app has been asked to predict more than sporting events. For example, when asked to predict the winning countries of the Eurovision singing contest, Cortana said that Sweden would win followed by Russia, Italy and Australia. While the personal assistant did have the top three correct, Belguim finished fourth followed by Australia.
Still, it was another impressive forecast made by the algorithm devised by Microsoft. We wonder what Cortana expects the S&P 500 to do for the balance of the year.
