Toronto, ON – Pointstreak Sports Technologies Inc. (“Pointstreak”), the leading provider of real-time scoring, statistical systems and online registration & payment processing for sports organizations, has selected Narrative Science, a Chicago based technology company whose artificial intelligence platform transforms data into stories and insights to create real-time sports content for its customers.
Narrative Science helps organizations create editorial content at a scale that was not previously feasible. Narrative Science’s artificial intelligence platform takes raw data and translates it into editorial content indistinguishable from human generated content. “The linkage is obvious for a sports technology company that continues to provide platforms to leagues around the world to publish and display real-time content in the form of sports statistics and video,” said Scott Secord, President/CEO of Pointstreak.
“We are excited to work with Narrative Science to deliver a real-time product that consumes the data generated from our platforms and provides a real-time editorial piece that can be delivered to a variety of information vehicles including the web and mobile. Our clients will now be able to publish content with the push of a button during live games as well as at the completion of the game to generate compelling stories from both the home and visiting team’s perspective – at a speed and scale not previously realized,” added Secord.
CEO of Narrative Science, Stuart Frankel said “We’re thrilled to be working with Pointstreak to provide this innovative product to their clients. Pointstreak’s scoring and team management solution combined with our automated authoring technology will provide Pointsteaks’s clients with up to the minute coverage of their games and will provide teams and fans a unique and valuable addition to the Pointstreak platform.”
