Fantasy Football and Alexa!

Fantasy Football and Alexa!

Summer is coming to an end and the football season is just around the corner. Also Fantasy-Football fans should not miss out, therefore Amazon plans to seduce them with a new skill from the AI developer StatMuse.
Alexa users can now use the skill to get information and suggestions from ESPN’s Senior Fantasy Analyst Matthew Berry.
In addition to analyses, planned ranking lists for teams, suggestions for fantasy draft picks and direct comparisons between different players, statistics are also available that not only contain real-life-moments, but also how the players behaved in fantasy leagues.

Berry’s contributions will be especially helpful to fantasy football players as they will be updated throughout the football season.Berry is a true coach, because he will propose starting positions and opinions on various trading offers.
A premium service from StatMuse is planned. The advantage: It allows users to adapt Berry’s advice to their specific teams. Amazon has even expanded the database. It can even retrieve data about college and high school football games.

Amazon’s AWS has even attached sensors to NFL stadiums which tracks the tags on players’ uniforms to track their movements. They use machine learning to evaluat the information and analyses them. So it is even possible to get real-time statistics and predictions about formations and games while watching the game on TV.
