    At least Bing have the decency to give credit where credit is due, unlike Google -

    Interesting. Thanks to Wikipedia’s much larger database I think Google’s Knowledge graph is the better short term service, but I do love Bing and this partnership with Britannica is a great start to competing with Google.

    I agree. Right now there’s no comparison between the two. Google’s is much more highly developed.

    Surely britannica should appear before wikipedia results especially if you have safe search turned on.

    If Microsoft was interested in propagating knowledge at the lowest possible price it would fund some cognitive science like Pinker and some humanists and let them collaborate with the graph theorists. Maybe in a few years the knowledge graph of Britannica would look as cool as Ngrams.
