Today, youíll see this come to life on Bing.com in a feature called Snapshot. Snapshot brings together information that you need at a glance, with rich connections to deeper information on the people, places, and things you care about made possible by our deep understanding of the real world. To accomplish this, Bing now tracks billions of entities and perhaps more importantly, the billions of relationships between them, all to get you the right data instantly while you search.

New Entities: Introducing Doctors, Lawyers, Dentists and Real Estate Properties

Over the last few months we have surfaced on Bing.com an additional 150 million entities encompassing web actives, doctors, dentists, lawyers, and individual real estate properties. Now when you search for a medical professional, e.g., {dr rhonda newton sammamish}, Bing returns the Snapshot of the professional that includes their specialty, experience, education as well as address and phone number. Searching for new home or heading to a friendís house for dinner? Now you can get detailed information about an address directly from the Snapshot. Because Bing marries its understanding about entities with web search, you often donít even need to type in the complete address. E.g., instead of {2700 point dr highland park il 60035}, you can simply type {2700 point dr highland park} and Bing will still return the right property.Bing Extends Snapshots To Include Doctors, Lawyers, Dentists and Real Estate Properties [bing.com]
