Fantasy 6 Sports Inc. ("Fantasy 6" or the "Company") (CSE:FYS)(CSE:FYS.CN)(OTC PINK:FNTYF)(FRANKFURT:6F6)(WKN:A2AKL8) has released the first of its artificial intelligence ("AI") driven products - a chatbot designed to deliver sports data from Fantasy 6's recently acquired FansUnite platform. The first generation of the FansUnite chatbot is available on Facebook Messenger and can be accessed by adding FansUnite as a Messenger Contact.
Reflective of the Company's push towards big data and AI, the FansUnite chatbot will give sports fans access to real time sports data and crowdsourced sports picks from FansUnite through a new and convenient mobile interface. The first generation version of the FansUnite chatbot will give users access to data such as top picks for any matches for that day, odds for any major team, and current picks from any FansUnite user. Future versions will leverage Machine Learning ("ML") and AI and offer more elaborate uses of FansUnite sports data.
"We're very keen to introduce our new FansUnite chatbot to the suite of features that we like to think make us different from the other players in the sports data space," said Shafin Diamond Tejani, Chief Executive Officer of Fantasy 6. "Our chatbot is just another example of how our team is leveraging cutting edge technology such as AI in order to develop valuable tools for our users. It's like having your own personal sports data scientist in your pocket on your phone available to you 24/7. It's part of our vision to help develop the most knowledgeable, passionate and engaged generation of sports fans in history."
ESPN recently released a three part series on the future of sports betting, highlighting the opinion that - "In the future, the most-sophisticated bettors won't be human -- they'll be robots. These betting bots, used by elite betting groups, will be fast, powerful and have terabytes of data flowing through them." FansUnite looks to bring these tools to the masses and level the playing field for its users. "Whether you're at the racetrack in Atlantic City, or at the cricket pitch in Mumbai, the FansUnite chatbot is giving our members the advantage in the trillion dollar global sports betting industry," said Darius Eghdami, CEO of FansUnite.
