Microsoft Rolls Out Natural Language Processing

May 1, 2014

I have lost track of Microsoft’s NLP initiatives. Internal research, Powerset, Fast Search & Transfer, and more have preceded smarter Smart Search. Microsoft said:

Smart Search allows you to swipe or type from the start screen to find what you need – whether it’s a document on your PC, a photo album in the cloud, your favorite app, or a website. This week we’re rolling out a series of improvements that allow you to find what you’re looking for and take action even faster.

Want to know more? Navigate to “Making Smart Search Smarter.”

The only hitch in the git along is that not too many folks write complete queries. Oh, if the user speaks to his or her mobile device, ambient noise can foul up the works.

Microsoft is trying, just as it did with contact lenses that could be medical devices. As you may know, Google snagged one of the key people in this project.

I am not sure if NLP is going to follow the same path. The contact lens project was pushing into new territory. The NLP thing is more of a “been there, done that” for customers, Apple, and Google. Bing’s me too noises may not attract as much attention as nanotechnology.
