Windows Phone’s Cortana assistant now predicts NFL football games

Cortana calls a Seahawks-Packers game

Windows Phone’s Cortana assistant raised some eyebrows during the World Cup, when it accurately predicted all but one of the knockout matches (that Germany-Brazil upset caught nearly everyone off-guard). Microsoft was clearly happy with that result, as it’s now applying those oracle-like abilities to NFL football games. Ask Cortana (or Bing on the web) who’s likely to win an upcoming match and you’ll quickly get a favorite. You sadly won’t be told why that team will emerge victorious, although the Bing crew notes that the decision is based on a combination of stats, previous match-ups, and subtler criteria like stadium conditions. It’ll be a long while before we know whether Cortana is as good at predicting American football as it is the international kind, but you can at least get her prognostications right away.
