Microsoft updates Cortana to actually care whether you live or die

Cortana, Microsoft’s voice assistant, has had a bit of an upgrade in the compassion department after someone found out how unhelpful it was when it came to medical emergencies.

Maneesh Juneja, who is a ‘Digital Health Futurist’ (we’re not sure what that means, either) found that when he told Cortana “I'm bleeding,” rather than springing into action to provide helpful information, the voice assistant instead simply replied “Interesting”. Not terribly useful.
