Decision Engines

With Hunch, a new start-up set to launch on Monday (backed by Flickr co-founder, Catrina Fake) and the launch of Bing last week from Microsoft, the race seems to be to tackle the next evolution of online inquiry - the "decision-making engine".

Here's a few recent news items offering more background:

Microsoft’s New Bing—The ‘Decision Engine’

Caterina Fake's Hunch.com, launching Monday, is already redefining 'decision engine'


From my experience with Bing this past week, it's "decision making" capabilities appear to much different then those promised by Hunch. It will be interesting to see how Hunch compares not only to Bing, but to the expectations of being able to deliver and assist in the actual "decision" making part.

More later ... it's time for me to move on right now and try and decide if I should tackle that article I have to finish or turn my attention to some mindless tv? :)

I've been using Hunch for a couple of months now. It is different and fun in its approach. Give it a whirl, for I'd be interested in what others think.
