'Intelligent' software up 8-0 on World Cup predictions

Eight World Cup games have been played since Microsoft’s answer to Siri, Cortana, was given the ability to predict the outcome of football matches in an update - and it has accurately called the winner every time. A 100 per cent hit rate is something which even Paul the Octopus could not achieve during the 2010 competition. Since this article was written two quarter-final games have been played and with Germany and Brazil both winning Cortana has stretched its run of accurate predictions into double figures. Cortana is named after the AI character that appears in the Halo video games, and is voiced by the same actress that provided dialogue for the games. It was demonstrated for the first time in April this year and will become a key part of Windows Phone, Windows and Xbox One in coming months. Currently it is only available to Windows Phone users in the US as a beta.
