Microsoft Research’s David Rothschild makes March Madness predictions

After predicting an impressive 21 out of 24 winners in the recent the 86th annual Academy Awards, David Rothschild, an economist from Microsoft Research New York City, is now taking on March Madness – the 2014 NCAA men’s basketball tournament.

It’s a first for the data-driven prognosticator, who correctly predicted 50 of 51 Electoral College outcomes in the U.S. presidential race in 2012.

With Selection Sunday complete and with bracket in hand, Rothschild will be following every step of the Big Dance, beginning March 18 all the way to the April 7 championship game.
