    Microsoft's foray into the personal assistant business with Cortana opens up many opportunities for ideas including different types of integration with other branches of knowledge. One area that may be unfamiliar to the general public is Microsoft's work with Academic Search (academic.research.microsoft.com), which is a general search tool for finding articles on particular types of inquiry or the people in those science fields. Indeed, Microsoft Research used to have a Windows Phone 7 app to use this service.
    Microsoft Research just published a new video where they discuss how Academic Search and Cortana are merging in early 2015. The demonstration was given at the annual Microsoft Research Faculty Summit where the presenters asked how they could turn Cortana into a research assistant and it follows upon the revelation of Project Adam, which we detailed yesterday.
