Microsoft working on virtual assistant that can answer 'Why' questions, will we see it in Cortana?

That's apparently the hard thing to master, instead of just digging up info to answer a line of leading questions. For example, Microsoft has a smart elevator in store, which can predict which floor are you trying to get to before you've pushed the button, based on your individual habits and conversations with colleagues like lunch plans. Taking you there, for instance, would be an answer to the question "Why would this person want to go to this floor right now?"
Cortana for Windows Phone, though we aren't sure if mobile chipsets and storage will be able to handle the data load to such an extent. Oh, well, give us at least the simultaneous translation service, Microsoft, and we'll call it even.It might sound scary, but the research chief claims safeguards are built in, preventing the AI project from connecting individual data with said habits. We hope some of this predictive artificial intelligence work will find its way into Microsoft's upcoming virtual assistant

I have few questions to ask Cortana: 1. Why Steve Ballmer's face is so creepy sometimes? 2. Why Nokia can't have a better CEO like BlackBerry's CEO John Chen? 3. Why Nokia became a b**ch for bashing others in social networks after acquired by Microsoft? 4. Why I have no Kia? 5. Why I'm asking so many questions about Nokia and Microsoft? 6. Why Cortana? WHY?

no pitty needed, i now only one droid device and the rest are windows. If anything i pitty droid users, though just like me they dont need pitty. Though i do feel sorry for the coutless s4, note 3 exchanges i do weekly, or other droid exchanges i do weekly, or master resets because gapps process kills the phone or any other random OS failure.
