CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--STATS, the worldwide leader in sports data and intelligence, confirmed speaking opportunities at two upcoming conferences—Hashtag Sports and the Sports Video Group (SVG) RSN Summit.
On Monday, June 25 at 10 a.m. EDT, Jayme Fuller, Senior Vice President of Global Partner Development at STATS will present on the panel, “Using Data to Drive the Live Sports Experience” at Hashtag Sports in New York City. Fuller is joined on the panel by Mike Grushin, Chief Operating Officer of Solution Architecture at Omnigon and Scott Bounds, U.S. Media and Cable Industry Lead at Microsoft. The panel will examine trends in data, including artificial intelligence and machine learning, and emerging technologies that will enhance game-day experiences, both in-stadium at home.
“I look forward to joining Mike Grushin and Scott Bounds as we discuss some of the leading trends and topics surrounding how fans engage with sports data,” said Fuller. “Data provides so many opportunities for networks, leagues and brands to engage with fans who are always looking for richer sporting experiences. STATS has been developing some of the leading artificial intelligence and machine learning solutions in sports and I look forward to sharing how the fan experience is changing now, and what it might be like in the future.”
On Wednesday, June 27 at 2:30 p.m. CDT, Patrick Lucey, Vice President of Artificial Intelligence at STATS will present on the panel, “Greasing the Tech Wheels: How AI and Automated Production Could Impact RSNs” at the SVG RSN Summit. Lucey is joined by Shaka Arnon, Head of U.S. Operations at WSC Sports, Fahad Haider, Vice President of Engineering at NESN, Per von Rosen, Broadcast Product Manager at Sportradar and Jérôme Wauthoz, Vice President of Products at Tedial. Moderated by SVG Senior Editor Karen Hogan Ketchum, the panel will examine how broadcasters are implementing new AI and automated production platforms and how AI may streamline everything from graphics creation to media management.
“Using AI and machine learning, broadcasters can scan through an enormous amount of data to tell the unique stories viewers are looking through, whether through a graphic or on air,” said Lucey. “AI can even be connected to video archives to immediately offer similar plays or scenarios to the broadcasters. There are a lot of opportunities on the horizon, and I look forward to sitting down with our diverse group of panelists to examine how AI will not only streamline production, but also present new capabilities for RSNs.”
