Day 2 of March Madness

Heading into Day 2 of March Madness, the first official standings are available. TeamUNU is currently leading the field of Swarms with an impressive 14 wins.  What’s even more impressive, however, is the fact that the TeamUNU swarm is currently outperforming all but 7 of the 159 individuals trying to Beat the Swarm in our $1000 March Madness challenge.  That means the swarm has jumped out to an early lead, taking down 96% of the individual challengers.   Of course, anything could happen as the games play on.  Here are the stats for the swarms:

As a reminder, we’ve challenged people across the internet to Beat the Swarm in predicting major events like the Super Bowl and Oscars. These Beat the Swarm competitions have not only been a lot of fun, they’re proving that groups are really smart when they think together in UNU.

For March Madness, we’re going even bigger. For the first time, we’ve invited a dozen swarms to compete in the first ever UNU bracket pool. And we’ve challenged hundreds of people to try and beat the winning swarm in a winner-takes-all $1,000 challenge!

Here’s is Team UNU’s full bracket, so you can follow along.

And, if you are new to UNU, this is how the Swarms filled out their brackets together. Each magnet below one person, working to reach consensus in real-time. The whole process takes just seconds.
