Bing, the Microsoft search engine, has added chatbots to its list of search services.  In addition to letting users search online for web content, video, images and maps, Bing is now the best place to find chatbots across multiple messaging platforms including Skype, Facebook Messenger, Slack and Telegram. At Microsoft Build 2017 the Bing team demonstrated the new Chatbots on Bing, as well as additional bot innovations expected to be broadly available in the near future. The Bing team is applying cutting edge AI techniques to solve problems in Machine Reading Comprehension (MRC) and conversational understanding at web scale.

From the release: “We believe the future of search will be more conversational, instead of the traditional query to document approach that searchers have become accustomed to. While having a conversation with your search engine may still be years away, chatbots can be a great way to get your questions answered and today we’re making Bing even more powerful by adding relevant chatbots to your search results.”
