A chatbot that knows cricket like the back of his hand

By : |March 23, 2018 1

When Dhoni is playing again? How many matches has South Africa won while playing at home? or What’s Rahul Dravid’s batting avarage? Getting precise answers to such complex cricketing queries will no longer be the forte of just commentators and statisticians. Roanuz, an Indian Artificial Intelligence (AI) start-up has developed a Chatbot that can mine relevant answers from statistical inputs obtained from every important international cricketing series and tournament.

The AI-powered virtual assistant, programmed to give context-relevant answers in both text and voice, is capable of executing near-real-time exchange, increase user self-service efficiency and deliver smooth conversational customer experiences.

The bot addresses an exhaustive set of information, from live and historical data on matches to player and team stats. The data-intelligent API covers info related to all ICC Men’s International matches from 2012, Indian Premier League, Big Bash League, Caribbean Premier League, Pakistan Premier League, Bangladesh Premier League, Ram Slam T20 Challenge, Tamil Nadu Premier League, Karnataka Premier League, Women’s T20I Tri-Series, Kenyan Premier League until date, Champions League T20 and Big Bash League to name a few.

“Having a wide coverage of relevant information, the bot has the ability to respond to different topics such as player profile, recent matches, player vs. team, team vs. team and live updates,” explains Anto Binish Kaspar, Founder & CEO, Roanuz.

The team at Roanuz has processed over 1.2 million balls (12,15,814 to be exact) until now, which means the API has been fed with approximately 5-million records as an input for the bot to answer questions related to modern-day cricket. This one-of-a-kind intelligent bot with analytical capabilities is taking around 1,500 milliseconds to respond at present, and this time is expected to dwindle to 300 milliseconds.

Along with the Cricket Bot API, the company has also introduced the Cricket Fantasy API as part of its cricket API suite. It provides easy-to-use, readymade data for developers and creators of fantasy games that can be easily integrated into their platforms.
