March becomes a surprisingly inefficient month at work in the United States. While this could be a result of daylight savings time, it’s most likely because a large number of workplaces will have employees watching the NCAA Basketball tournaments. I’ve seen classes stop and know of workplaces taking quite a few long lunches to watch one of the largest playoffs in American sport.
Continuing their trend of predicting major events, Bing has come out with a group of features for making brackets for the NCAA tournament. A fun way to stay involved with the tournament that fields 68 different college teams is filling out a bracket and seeing if you can predict the outcomes of the tournament. ‘Bracketology’ isn’t an exact science but millions of people fill out brackets and compete in various online, office, and other pools.
In this video, I walk through the brackets, and show you how Bing can help you fill out yours:
This year Bing’s predictions include an auto fill feature that is based off of ten years of data as well as the ability to import your bracket into NCAA.com.
