Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT): Closing price $34.41
On Wednesday, at its Build developer conference, Microsoft said that it is opening up a large amount of Bing‘s advanced functionality to developers. Vice President Gurdeep Singh Pall noted that developers are already employing Bing APIs, and apps can now utilize Bing’s natural user interfaces, entities and knowledge, optical character recognition, and new mapping and visualization capabilities, among which includes Microsoft’s just-announced 3-D imagery for maps. Pall also said that Microsoft has been using all of these capabilities privately, but he believes that “if we can do something with an API that is good, third parties can do something that is dynamite.”
