SmartBracket App Picks NCAA March Madness Bracket Using “Explainable AI” Tech

ROYAL OAK – Want to crush your office NCAA College Basketball pool? Well a software program developed by Supported Intelligence in East Lansing can help you do just that. CEO Patrick Anderson joined Matt Roush and Mike Brennan on M2 TechCast to explain how.

SmartBracket 2018 went live Sunday night, after a “furious 2 hours putting the final touches on the actual selections by the NCAA for over 64 teams in this year’s March Madness,” said Ervin Batka, Lead Developer for SmartBracket 2018.

“This year’s application has customization options for users, including the ability to pick a few teams you really want, and have SmartBracket fill in the rest,” he added.

SmartBracket caters to a wide array of users, including casual players that just want to pick a few teams they like, to sophisticated “sports nerds” that have already prepared their own scouting reports. “We make it fun, and we make it much more likely that they can win their bracket,” said Ervin.

The application was created by the technology company Supported Intelligence LLC. The company is bringing the same “explainable AI” technology, which helps people make decisions and understand why,  to business and consumer applications as well.

You can try it at, and on the iOS and Android app stores.
