As Microsoft begins to talk more about its ambitions in advancing the next stage of artificial intelligence, some see the company’s Bing search engine as the overlooked foundation to those efforts. Nadella describes Bing as a “great training ground for building the hyper-scale, cloud-first services” that have allowed the company to pivot to new technologies as its computer software business wanes.
