Reddit Partners With Microsoft to Deliver Intelligent Search Results and Business Intelligence Tools

Today, we’re thrilled to announce a partnership two years in the making, harnessing the power of Microsoft’s artificial intelligence technology to deliver the best possible search experiences for Bing users and analytical tools for brands and marketers.

As our co-founder Alexis Ohanian shared earlier today in his presentation at Microsoft’s AI conference, we’re kicking off the partnership by unveiling two new products that apply Microsoft’s AI tools to Reddit’s vast data:

  • Bing Intelligent Search: first-ever search experiences returning Reddit results for AMAs, Questions, and Communities; and
  • The Power BI suite of solution templates for brand management and targeting on Reddit: a comprehensive set of business intelligence solutions enabling brands, marketers, and budget owners to quickly analyze their Reddit footprint and determine how, where, and with whom to engage in the Reddit community.

The Content You Love, Now Easier to Find

Reddit is home to the most engaging and authentic conversations online with more than 2.5 million comments per day across 138,000 active communities. Now, Bing is making it easier than ever to surface that content through smarter search results.

As part of the Intelligent Search features launching today, Bing users will notice three key search experiences that return the most relevant content possible from Reddit’s vast community:

Desktop view of Bing’s cross-platform Reddit community search experience

If you type in “reddit” and the name of a Reddit community, like “aww” or “data is beautiful,” the relevant subreddits will show up in a dedicated results section. Better still, Bing will surface a sneak peak of the community with the top conversations of the day.

Mobile view of Bing’s cross-platform Reddit AMA search experience

If you type in the name of someone who’s done an AMA—let’s say, Dr. Jane Goodall—their past or upcoming AMAs will surface along with additional information about Jane. l. Bing will give snapshots of completed AMAs and, for users just searching for “Reddit AMAs” in general, a carousel of popular AMAs.

Mobile view of Bing’s cross-platform Reddit Q&A search experience

Last but certainly not least, Bing users whose queries are best answered with relevant Reddit conversations, will see those conversations at the top of the page, easily getting perspectives from millions of Reddit users.

Best of all, Bing has launched their suite of Reddit-tailored results across platforms, so whether you’re on your phone wondering what the best free online certificates are that will look good on your resume or on desktop looking for a community devoted to baby elephant gifs, Bing users will have access to the most relevant Reddit content right at their fingertips.

As this initial set of experiences roll out, we will work with Bing to collect feedback and continue refining and adding features as we understand how people are using this experience.

Better Brand Insights from Reddit

But wait: there’s more!

In addition to launching an all-new consumer search experience for Reddit content on Bing, our partnership with Microsoft also leverages our relationship with Socialgist to bring Reddit’s data and API to Power BI, a comprehensive set of business modules that utilizes Microsoft’s AI and analytics to help brands and marketers analyze data and share insights.

As we developed our partnership with Microsoft, we found that Power BI offered incredibly robust, and easy-to-consume business intelligence tools to turn Reddit data into clear, useful insights. Power BI’s data analysis offers flexibility to customize and even build your own modules. It also enables dynamic querying, which allows users to easily re-run and change queries in real time and customize data visualizations through multiple variables.

With the general availability of the Power BI solution templates suite for brand management and targeting on Reddit, brands and marketers can now monitor, target, and compare their Reddit footprint across communities in a flexible, convenient format. Brands can use this solution to see which communities are talking about them the most, uncover the sentiment of those conversations, and receive detailed breakdowns of their mentions and sentiment over time. Learn more about the Power BI Solution Templates here.

We hope today’s announcement is just the first step in exploring the opportunities to bring relevant content, communities, and insights from our users to brands and consumers alike. In the meantime, check out Bing’s improved search experience for yourself and learn more about Microsoft Power BI here.

IBM Power9 bulks up for AI workloads

The latest proprietary Power servers from IBM, armed by the long-awaited IBM Power9 processors, look for relevance among next-generation enterprise workloads, but the company will need some help from its friends to take on its biggest market challenger.

IBM emphasizes increased speed and bandwidth with its AC922 Power Systems to better take on high-performance computing tasks, such as building models for AI and machine learning training. The company said it plans to pursue mainstream commercial applications, such as building supply chains and medical diagnostics, but those broader-based opportunities may take longer to materialize.

“Most big enterprises are doing research and development on machine learning, with some even deploying such projects in niche areas,” said Patrick Moorhead, president and principal analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy. “But it will be 12 to 18 months before enterprises can even start driving serious volume in that space.”

The IBM Power9-based systems’ best chance for short-term commercial success is at the high end of the market.

“Power9 as a platform for AI is the focus over the next year or two,” said Charles King, principal analyst at Pund-IT Research Inc. “We are still a ways from seeing this sort of technology come down further into the commercial markets.”

But IBM may need to rely on its most important business partner and customer to drive the Power9’s commercial acceptance.

Google, a co-founder, along with IBM and Nvidia, of the OpenPower Foundation, contributed work around Power8 and ported over its applications to work with IBM’s Power-based systems. Google executives have declined to say how the company would deploy the Power9 internally and for what applications, but broadly deploying the IBM Power9 processor in servers for its data centers could seed confidence among corporate users, Moorhead said.

“To gain share at the macro level they need a Google deployment,” he said. “This could inspire others to deploy Power9 who are actually running large amounts of their production workloads.”

Under the hood of Power9

At the heart of the IBM AC922 system’s architecture are PCI-Express 4.0, Nvidia’s NVLink 2.0 and OpenCAPI, which together improve speed and bandwidth, according to the company. The NVLink 2.0, developed jointly by IBM and Nvidia, is claimed to transport data between the IBM Power9 CPU and Nvidia’s GPU seven to 10 times faster than an earlier version of the technology. The systems are also tuned to take advantage of popular AI frameworks: TensorFlow, a Google-developed open source software library for numerical computation using data flow graphs; Chainer, a framework supporting neural networks; and Caffe, a deep learning framework developed by Berkeley AI Research.

These “accelerators” are part of the IBM Power9 evolving hardware architecture, and are designed to solidify the system’s competitive footing in the cloud computing market.

“We have seen how aggressive the compute requirements have grown in the Linux space, especially as AI workloads were added to the mix,” said Stefanie Chiras, vice president of IBM’s Power Systems. “It now requires a different level of infrastructure underneath to support that level of data transport.”

IBM faces off with Intel

Some of IBM’s server competitors have pledged to deliver systems built to handle AI workloads, and some said they believe Intel will be Big Blue’s most serious competitor. Intel unveiled its AI processor called Nervana late last year and promised a finished product by the end of this year.

Intel’s advantage in the budding competition for AI processors is the overwhelming market share of its server-based Xeon processors, compared to that of proprietary chips such as IBM. Nervana could prove a formidable competitor to IBM in the AI market, but the Power9 with its accompanying accelerator technologies has the edge right now, Moorhead said.

“Intel will point out they have about 95% of the processors and their Nervana accelerator, but IBM is the only one out there with NVLink that has the highest bandwidth connection you can have between a CPU and GPU,” Moorhead said. “Intel would have to significantly change its architecture to support something like NVLink, and they won’t do that any time soon.”
