The US software giant Microsoft unveiled Bing, its new Web search engine, described as a “Decision Engine“, which is designed to intuitively understand what people are seeking on the Internet and challenge online search numero uno Google.
Bing will be deployed worldwide at Bing.com by next Wednesday.
Bing‘s launch is aimed at challenging Google and Yahoo’s proposed improvements to their search engine services and the launch of a “Wolfram Alpha” query engine that delivers answers instead of lists of websites.
Bing relies predominately on algorithms and key words to provide results for online searches but has infused some semantic technology that deduces intended meanings of phrases.
Bing will replace MSN Live Search.
