In 2014, Microsoft's Bing search engine had an excellent track record in predicting the winners of the 2014 FIFA World Cup soccer tournament. Now that same engine is attempting to prognosticate which teams will win their matches in the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup tournament.
The event started in Canada a couple of days ago and so far, Microsoft says that Bing was 4-0 in predicting the winning teams during the opening weekend. Microsoft says:
"Our models show Germany, currently ranked at No. 1, winning close games against No. 3-ranked France in the quarterfinals and the No. 2-ranked USA in the semifinals. Host team Canada will have a nice run, winning their Group and playing England in the quarterfinals. In the end, we predict that the German women will join their male counterparts as defending World Cup champions, defeating Sweden (which will reach the finals despite a 2nd place finish in USA's group)."
People who search for "womens world cup" on Bing.com will be able to check out the latest results from the tournament at the top of the search result, including live scores when they are happening in real time.
