Data scouting for sports betting

first_img Data scouting for sports betting AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Integrating AI technologyFedyukov breaks down how the AI component of AJNA works alongside the live streaming: “We have several phases in our process. The first is input stream processing, where we do un-distortion, remaps, stitching, rotates for video frames, and identify scheme and field corner coordinates. In other words we automatically define full-field geometry from the video stream.“In the next phase, we use the player detection module to track players, dividing all people on the game field into team and referee categories. With this data we are able to track in a robust way and store personal tracks as geo-spatial event logs for each player. On top of that, we run event detection models that allow us to extract gamesemantic information such as goal likelihood.”With these increased capabilities come new opportunities for sports betting verticals. The tracker then takes this information and collects the statistical data, which can be used to predict various metrics such as who has the ball at which point, whereabouts on the field they are and where other players are in relation to them. The technology can predict goal likelihood in real-time.The combination of AI and live streaming offers extended personal tracking like player speed or distance run per game, which can be converted into a number of new markets to bet on.Of the product, Vigen Badalyan, CEO of BetConstruct says: “BetConstruct is about providing viability and convenience. We come up with creative and enlightening solutions such as the AJNA live tracking device which serves as a third eye on the gaming field, seeing way more than the eyes of a scout.”Currently, AJNA provides full live on-field coverage of football, with a view to extending this to more sports in the future. About the expertsVigen Badalyan is the founder and CEO at BetConstruct, and has dedicated 15 years to the company (pictured left)Dmytro Fedyukov has worked as the head of data science at BetConstruct for the last year. He has worked in data intelligence, big data and high-performance computing for 20 years in the telco, gambling and media domains. There are many benefits to increasing the accuracy of data scouting in sports betting. As well as increasing the trust and improving the experience and gamification for players, collecting more technical data opens up new and unique markets to bet on.However, our capabilities of doing this manually are limited; technology plays a fundamental role in taking data scouting to the next level. One company striving to incorporate innovative technology into its data scouting solutions is BetConstruct. Its new product, AJNA, uses a combination of augmented live video streaming and artificial intelligence to produce new standards of data collection and analysis.Dmytro Fedyukov, head of data science at BetConstruct, explains further: “This development was all about collecting statistical information in real-time using a combination of hardware and software. Using quite simple cameras, we can extract statistics data for all players on the field.” The technology was built with three aims: 17th January 2019 | By Josephine Watson Email Address To develop statistical information for teams and coaches for tactical analysis To create augmented information and add more information to live streams To collect individual statistics and create additional opportunities in sports betting Sports betting Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Sports betting New technologies such as AI are enabling increasingly accurate and granular data for sports betting.

IPL 2020: Tentative dates for IPL 2020 – Sep 26th to…

first_img Cricket Tentative schedule for IPL 2020 – September 26th to November 8thInsidesport has reliably learnt that over last few days the BCCI consulted with all the franchises, media rights partner (Star India) and the other stakeholders of the IPL and has identified tentative window from Sep 26th to Nov 8th for IPL 2020. This tentative datelines will be followed subject to the postponement of the T20 World Cup in Australia. The International Cricket Council (ICC) after their board meeting on June 10th had delayed its decision on the T20 World Cup to the month of July. – The sources in the BCCI tells us that the board was not ready to wait till that long and that is the reason as soon as the ICC meeting finished, Ganguly shot off the attached letter to the member associations.– Post that BCCI went into huddle to decide the tentative plan on the IPL 2020. – The board ended all speculation on the bilateral series listed in the FTP by officially announcing postponement of Sri Lanka / Zimbabwe series. – BCCI also consulted with the broadcast partner on the window and post that tentative window for IPL 2020 has been zeroed down from Sep 26th to Nov 8th.

ICC has to decide on the T20 World Cup way forward and we have to decide on our plans. That is the reason tentative window has been zeroed down and we will start preparing as per this window for IPL”, said one of the BCCI member.No Decision on the Venue ?Now as the window is decided for IPL 2020 – the next huddle for the BCCI would be where to host the IPL 2020. The Indian cricket board is undecided on the same. The first preference still is India provided the situation improves in next 30 days. According to the IPL Governing Council chairman Brijesh Patel’s own admission –“the IPL 2020 can be hosted closed doors, can be limited to fewer venues, can be taken overseas, can be even played without international players”This clearly proves the intent of the BCCI and tells that the Indian board is desperate to organize IPL 2020 and they are ready to make compromises.

They have four options:Reinvest into the business for future growth.Buy back shares to reduce their shareholder base.Buy other businesses or assets.Pay shareholders regular cash dividends.High-growth businesses almost always choose options 1, 2 or 3. One cynical reason they choose option 2 is to boost earnings per share and inflate the value of executives’ share options.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…However, when I buy shares to own a company, I demand, “Show me the money!” (just like Cuba Gooding Jr in 1996 film Jerry Maguire). Indeed, I look for regular, rising and well-covered cash dividends as a show of company strength.‘Boring’ FTSE 100 firms can pay big dividendsRecently, my search for high-yielding shares alighted on UK telecoms giant Vodafone. In its latest financial year, Vodafone forked out £2.05 billion in cash dividends to shareholders – one of the FTSE 100’s biggest dividend distributions.It’s easy to see a future for Vodafone, moving in the fast-growing, vital world of technology. But what about investing in ‘boring, old-fashioned and dying’ industries? From a dividend standpoint, I’d highly recommend it!From telecoms to tobaccoToday, my search for yield in the FTSE 100 focuses on two pariahs of the investing world, both tobacco companies. While ethical investors shun tobacco stocks, as a smoker on and off since the late Eighties, I know just how addictive their products are.Thanks to their defensive qualities, the coronavirus market crash has propelled shares in  British American Tobacco and Imperial Brands into the highest ranks of the FTSE 100.On 1 April, I recommended investors buy shares in Imperial Brands. Its share price has since crept up by 6% to 1,635p. But buying at today’s higher price still means banking an incredibly high yearly dividend of around 13%. And remember that’s a yearly payout in good, old-fashioned cash. Even it were to halve to 6.5% a year, it would still beat most income-generating assets hands down.As for BAT, its business is broadly the same: selling tobacco and cancer sticks to a shrinking global customer base. And yet, at its current share price of 3,044p, BAT is a £70 billion mega-cap business, soaring to fifth in the FTSE 100 index. Meanwhile, as billions of smokers quit or die off, BAT pays a chunky and steady 6.7% dividend yield to its owners.In summary, in times of crisis, investors should worry more about the return of their capital than the return on it. Investing in Imperial Brands and BAT won’t shoot the lights outs, but their historically high dividends are ideal for FTSE 100 fans, both individual and institutional investors alike.

3 Steps to Simplify Your Back-to-School Morning Routine

Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here Back to School 2017Use these simple strategies to create order this school yearKatie Bugbee of care.comGetting out the door on a school day is never easy. You have kids to feed, lunches to make, gear to pack, backpacks to remember. Plus, you also need to make sure that they’re getting themselves dressed and ready to go — and that seems to be about as easy as herding ants (i.e., worse than cats). Even if you’ve hired someone to help you out in the mornings — whether it’s a before-school babysitter or a mother’s helper — this morning madness is pretty much inevitable.The good news is that there are some steps you can take to make your mornings go more smoothly. Here are our three big tips for getting out the door efficiently:Step 1: Have Chores Set Aside for the Night BeforeUse our pre-bedtime checklist (one for elementary school kids and one for preschoolers) to help kids remember to put their backpack by the door, pack for soccer/music/dance/Karate/etc., and pick out what they want to wear the next day. Use a family calendar to keep kids in-the-know and everyone else — from parents to babysitters and nannies — organized about activities.Step 2: Create Morning VisualsThe best part about our morning checklist is that it not only has visuals for the non-readers, but it has empty clocks for you to add times they should expect to finish certain tasks. Place a clock (with hands) in the hallway near their bedrooms so everyone can be kept on track and gets out the door on time.Step 3: Focus on Your JobsGiving kids their own responsibilities lets you focus on yours. This might include making breakfast, packing lunches and signing forms. Place the lunch boxes and paperwork in the appropriate backpack (placed by the door the night before), and sit with the kids for breakfast. Leave some time at breakfast to go over the day’s schedule and any reminders you have for them.Pro Tip: Cutting out technology in the morning (TV and video games) will streamline your routine and create less whining. Instead, use screen time as a reward when homework is done at night.Get more advice on how to limit the morning madness.Katie Bugbee has written for Babble, Huffington Post, Newsday and Parenting.

Freddie Mac’s Mortgage-Related Investments Portfolio Balance Grows

first_img  Print This Post The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Freddie Mac’s annualized rate for mortgage-related investments portfolio in October grew 4.7 percent, a stark contrast from the contraction of 15.8 percent last month. Fannie Mae is set to release its October statement later this month.This expansion in annualized growth rate pushed the aggregate unpaid principal balance of the portfolio to $309.3 billion as of the end of October. This balance is still $30 billion lower than the 2016 cap of $339.3 billion, which is the amount the portfolio must reach by the end of the year as part of its required reduction.The value of Freddie Mac’s mortgage-related investments portfolio has declined by approximately $46.3 billion since October 2015, when the aggregate UPB of the portfolio sat at $355.6 billion. For the past 10 months of 2016, the portfolio has contracted at an average rate of 13 percent and has contracted in all but three of the last 13 months (December 2015, January 2016, and now October 2016).Freddie Mac’s single-family refinance-loan purchase and guarantee volume for September was $22.4 billion, which represented 60 percent of total single-family mortgage portfolio purchases or issuances during the month. Relief refinance mortgages comprised approximately 4 percent of Freddie Mac’s total single-family refinance volume. The serious delinquency rate on mortgages backed by Freddie Mac increased a basis point month-over-month from 1.02 to 1.03 percent.The number of loan modifications completed on Freddie Mac-backed loans totaled 3,455, which brings the year-to-date total (as of October 31) up to 35,342.Freddie Mac reported a net income of $2.3 billion in the third quarter, which was an increase from the $1 billion net income seen in Q2. The reduction of the mortgage portfolio and the wind-down of the GSEs’ capital buffer, which is required to be at zero by January 1, 2018, is likely to result in more calls for GSE reform as the Trump Administration takes the helm in January.

Spellbinding fun: Wizarding Weekend returns for a fifth year

first_imgIthaca, N.Y. –– Wizarding Weekend returns Oct. 26 with magical new ways to enjoy the festivities.In its fifth year, the festival will take over three city blocks, transforming downtown into a labyrinth of music, games, vendors and art.Magic-inspired music acts like Flitwick and the Charmers will be playing at the Bernie Milton Pavilion, while Quidditch matches and other gaming will take over Press Bay Alley. The Bernie Milton Pavilion will also feature a trivia contest and a costume runway.(Photo by Kelsey O’Connor/Ithaca Voice)New Roots Charter School will be transformed into the GorgeKeep School of Magic, where guests can participate in a Scroll Ceremony, and be assigned quests. Also at GorgeKeep, augmented reality helps users see inside Ithaca’s own magic academy.“There is an augmented reality experience that is made possible by VisionLab360,” said Festival Director Darlynne Overbaugh. “They’re a local company that has last year and this year graciously volunteered to create something special. Attendees do need to bring their own smartphone or tablet of sorts.”New this year is the potions crawl –– a food and drink experience in collaboration with Ithaca Coffee Company, F. Oliver’s, The Commons Kitchen, Green Street Pharmacy, Emmy’s Organics, Lucky Hare Brewing, Alley Cat Cafe, and the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail. Alley Cat Cafe will be featuring Penelope Purrington’s Pumpkin Patch Potion, and for the first time there will be alcoholic concoctions created for the festival, as part of the potions crawl. Cayuga Lake Wine Trail is debuting their Sea Pig Tentacle Tonic for adventurous witches and wizards above the age of 21.“It’s a great example of the imagination that goes into this event,” Overbaugh said. “Nothing excites me more than getting people to engage in that creativity.”Most of the festival is free, but guests can purchase Magical Passports to gain access to the potions crawl and other extra activities. You can purchase passports for $25 on the festival website. Your Arts & Culture news is made possible with support from: Anna Lamb is a reporter for the Ithaca Voice.Questions? Story tips?

FanUnity Inc, a non-profit founded in part by festival originator and director Darlynne Overbaugh, is putting on this year’s Wizarding Weekend.“Wizarding Weekend since its inception in 2015 has been a completely volunteer situation. I have been both fiscally and legally responsible for the event since it’s inception,” she said. “So in an effort to remove that burden from one person, we’ve started FanUnity inc.”Overbaugh has faced legal action by Warner Bros., the owner’s of the Harry Potter brand, for infringement on their intellectual property.(Photo by Kelsey O’Connor/Ithaca Voice)“The idea for Wizarding Weekend came about in 2015 when two local teens thought it would be cool to have an event that was themed to a certain book in Ithaca. At the time I was a business owner in press bay alley,” Overbaugh said. “The other business owners thought it would be a good idea and so I volunteered to put something together –– something modest, and it exploded.”Since the festival has grown –– reaching a peak of over 20,000 guests in 2017, there have been ongoing issues with Warner Bros. including a new matter regarding a trademark patent Overbaugh had submitted for the “Wizarding Weekend” name. This year she received notification from the US trademark patent office that her trademark was being contested by Warner Bros. Because of this,  organizers are debuting a new name for the festival on Oct. 26 at 11 a.m.“We’ve complied as much as we can and will continue to do so. and what I’m more excited about is the opportunity to make GorgeKeep a bigger part of the festival and to go beyond where we have started,” Overbaugh said. “Everything grows, everything changes and so has this festival.”The festival will take place Saturday, Oct. 26 10 a.m. to 5pm and Sunday, Oct. 27 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.The Mystic Arts Ball at Liquid State Brewing from 9 p.m. to midnight on Saturday.For more information and updates on Wizarding Weekend, visit the website and Facebook page.

Grandmother accused of killing husband, look-alike held without bond in Florida

first_imgWZVN(FORT MYERS, Fla.) — The Minnesota woman accused in an alleged multistate crime spree will continue to be held without bond in Florida, where she was extradited last week after being captured in Texas.Lois Riess waived her right to appear for her pretrial detention hearing today in Lee County in southwest Florida. A public defender, who was appointed to represent her, did not challenge a request by the Florida State Attorney’s Office that she be held on no bond.During her initial court appearance Sunday, a judge had ordered Riess remain jailed without bond before today’s hearing. An arraignment hearing is slated for May 29.The 56-year-old mother and grandmother had been the focus of a weekslong, nationwide hunt after she allegedly shot and killed her husband in their home state, before killing and stealing the identity of a woman who looked like her in another state and then fleeing across the country to a third state.The case began in Blooming Prairie, Minnesota, where, authorities said, 54-year-old David Riess hadn’t been seen in more than two weeks as of March 23, and his business partner requested that law enforcement go to his home.There, authorities found Riess’ body. He had been shot multiple times, according to the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office.It was unclear how long he had been dead, and his wife was missing, the sheriff’s office said.After Lois Riess allegedly killed her husband in Minnesota, she allegedly stole his money and then drove to Fort Myers Beach, Florida. There, she met Pamela Hutchinson, 59, and then killed her and stole her ID, credit cards and car, according to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.Investigators said Riess targeted Hutchinson because of similarities in their appearances, and they feared she would target other women who looked like her.On the night of April 19, U.S. Marshals deputies and local police arrested Riess on South Padre Island, Texas, according to U.S. Marshals Service spokesman John Kinsey. The South Padre Island Police Department had received a tip from a resident who recognized Riess.She was sitting alone at a restaurant having a drink when authorities approached her and didn’t appear to be surprised, Kinsey said. She was taken into custody without incident.Investigators said there’s no indication she was trying to cross into Mexico, despite being so close to the border. Authorities found two pistols in the motel room where she was allegedly staying in South Padre Island.“This case from the very beginning struck at me as odd,” Florida’s Lee County Undersheriff Carmine Marceno told reporters during a joint news conference with the U.S. Marshals Service. “We look at her appearance — she looks like anybody’s mother or grandmother, yet she’s an absolute cold-blooded murderer.”The former fugitive was arraigned in South Padre Island April 21 and taken to a local county jail. The following week, after waiving her right to an extradition hearing, Riess was extradited to southwest Florida where she remains for the time being.“Lois Riess will be going to Florida first while we continue to build the strongest case possible against her here in Minnesota,” Minnesota’s Dodge County Sheriff Scott Rose said in a statement April 25. “We will bring her back to Minnesota to stand trial when Florida is done.”The Riess family is well-known in the small community of Dodge County, the sheriff has said. Lois Riess, who has three adult children, was known to have a “gambling problem” and “financial problems,” the sheriff told reporters last month, though there was previously no record of her ever being charged with a crime.Investigators believe Riess, while on the run, was living off money she had won at a Louisiana casino, according to a source with the U.S. Marshals Service. She used her real name to claim $2,500 in winnings at the casino sometime last month before heading to southern Texas.But the casino only noticed her name several days later while processing receipts, the source told ABC News.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
