It had an incredibly intriguing stat that checks out “the capability to extract answers from text has actually currently enabled Bing to offer direct responses to 20 per cent of the queries it gets, according to Ribas. It sounds like he is stating that for 20% of all queries done on Microsoft Bing, Bing will serve up direct responses. Those direct answers are drawn out from text on a page that Bing can acknowledge as a strong response for that query.It is not 100% clear to me what that 20% number is referring to but I believe it suggests 20% of all inquiries have a direct response in Bing – however I can be wrong.
