Cortana now predicts outcomes for Soccer (Football) tournaments

Back in April, Bing unveiled an experiment they built that gives you a prediction of an outcome of a given event. Their first iteration of this was to attempt to predict which contestants are most likely to be eliminated or move on to the next round of voting for shows like The Voice, American Idol and Dancing With The Stars. A few weeks ago, Bing announced they were taking the experiment even further by offering predictions for outcomes of sporting events like the very high-profile soccer matches happening right now in Brazil. Because Cortana in Windows Phone 8.1 is powered by Bing, we thought it would be fun to have Cortana verbalize what team she thinks might win based on this prediction technology from Bing. For example – if you ask Cortana “Who will win Team A or Team B?” she will provide a response on who she thinks might win the game. We thought this might be something fun to do with Cortana. Give it a try!
