Cortana correctly predicts the outcome of the Super Bowl

Cortana already declared the New England Patriots as winners of the Super Bowl yesterday, and now that the future has caught up with us, it turns out that the personal assistant was indeed right.

The New England Patriots won Super Bowl XLIX, edging out the Seattle Seahawks 28 to 24. Cortana's ability to predict the outcome of matches is based on the Bing prediction engine, which uses search, social and cultural signals. Microsoft announced that it will also be offering predcitions for other trends, including picking the best movie for this year's Oscars, best new artist at the Grammys, and more.

What do you think of Cortana's ability to predict outcomes of football matches and other global events?
