Nov 02, 2021 (Financial News Media via COMTEX) -- Palm Beach, FL - November 2, 2021 – FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – Artificial Intelligence (AI) has grown so quickly that it has become a common every-day tool that most of us use or benefit from... most times without even knowing it. It has infiltrated itself into more and more aspects of common life and activities. Now, it has found more new green pastures for it to expand into... the eSports and gaming industries. Gambling involves a lot of luck but also preparation. Bookmakers now benefit from real-time statistics about esports players, teams and events that inform betting odds and provide context to bettors. AI can process enormous amounts of data very quickly and make predictions accordingly. PandaScore's AI platform, for example, collects 300 data points in League of Legends in half a second. The system continually learns based on history and incoming data to provide the most current breakdowns and predictions about who will win, lose, accomplish certain tasks, etc. A recent article in iGaming Business said that: "Artificial intelligence (AI) is playing an increasingly integral role in the data-dependent esports vertical. From assisting in odds-setting to flagging suspect behavior, the technology’s uses are endless." Active tech companies in the markets today include: Esports Technologies /zigman2/quotes/226082549/composite EBET -2.61% , Super League Gaming /zigman2/quotes/202401484/composite SLGG -8.29% , Elys Game Technology, Corp. /zigman2/quotes/205772999/composite ELYS -4.47% , Esports Entertainment Group, Inc. /zigman2/quotes/208107430/composite GMBL -9.22% , Skillz Inc. /zigman2/quotes/216943028/composite SKLZ -9.36% .
iGaming Business continued: "By its digital nature, esports is more data-driven than traditional sports, which has created a need for advanced AI in the industry. IBM recently introduced Power Rankings with Watson, an AI-powered method of evaluating player and team performances in the Overwatch League. GRID continually analyses game play and shows viewers important information such as weapon load-outs, spells and where the last kill occurred... Beyond odds and predictions, AI can identify risky betting behaviours and illegal operations. Australia's gambling operator, Tabcorp, for example, will reportedly boost its sports wagering operations with AI. The platform will apparently offer high-scale possibilities for predicting outcomes of NFL games and providing sports bettors with more elements to wager on."
