Bing wants to help you win your March Madness bracket pool.
The Microsoft search engine announced today that it is the NCAA’s “official bracket data partner” this year as the nation’s annual collegiate basketball tournament kicks off next week.
Using its algorithms that have already fared well in predicting World Cup match winners and the best singers on “The Voice,” Bing will analyze 10 years of NCAA historical data to “identify key patterns over the years that contribute to a team’s success.”
“This intelligent bracket will combine your team loyalties with Bing’s predictive power and give you a leg up in your March Madness pool,” Bing wrote today.
Bing’s analysis will be available after Selection Sunday on March 15, so check back on GeekWire for Microsoft’s March Madness advice. In the meantime, you can see Bing’s predictions for Cricket World Cup matches here.
