YUSUF MEHDI: It is definitely a new day for search. The opportunity to bring an infused AI and new chat-like experiences with the tools that people use the most on the web today, which is the search engine, the browser, is an opportunity to do something completely new.
And today, what we’ve seen is of the 10 billion queries that happen every day, roughly half go unanswered. You basically, you can’t get an answer to the question you try. We now have a system, with the new Bing and the new Edge, to actually answer your questions, to let you chat with it, and let it create and spark your creativity by generating content.
