SportTechie’s Kento Kato explores STATS’ recent acquisition of Automated Insights, and how the partnership will continue to revolutionize how sports data and analytics are consumed. Through Automated Insights’ natural language generation software, Wordsmith, data can be viewed and understood like it never has before.
“Vista Equity Partners, which owns STATS LLC, has acquired Automated Insights (AI) to advance the use of AI’s natural language generation (NLG) technology throughout a wide variety of industries, some of which include business, intelligence, media, and sports.
AI’s NLG platform, also known as Wordsmith, automatically creates narratives with depth and personality out of raw data. Just in 2014, it created over a billion articles for its customers, which include The Associated Press, and Yahoo.”
