Bing and Wolfram Alpha, the Decision and Answer engines are working together as reported in August this year that they are planning to have Wolfram Alpha's results appear in Bing search results.

Now with Wolfram's Alpha computational knowledge integrated into Bing, search results relating mathematical formulas, nutritional information or body mass index (BMI) will be displayed.

Why is Bing implementing this integration? Here's a short quote from Bing's blog:
"So what are we doing? Well, we‘ll be providing access to Wolfram|Alpha’s advanced algorithms and expertly curated data within the Bing experience. This new and exciting work is completely aligned with our broader goal of enabling faster, more informed decisions. Specifically, we will bring nutritional information and tools into Bing’s search results, as well as some straight up hard math and homework help."
