Tech comes to aid of ICC  cricket world cup fans

May 30,2019: The World Cup Fever is at an all time high, and Indians are no exception to this. It has been reported that  United Kingdom has been receiving over 3500 Visa applications a day from India alone. People are on the constant lookout for cricket facts, figures, data and milestones instantly. What if a Chatbot API can personally give you all the answers you are looking for and that too instantly? Any information relevant to live or historic data about cricket and the world cup? Wouldn’t that be ideal for the season?
Precise answers to your complex cricketing queries is what the new world cup Chatbot API from RoanuzSoftwares promises. The team at Roanuz has processed over 1.2 million balls until now. This means that the API has been fed with approximately 5-million records as input and was taking around 1,500 milliseconds to respond. With the new intelligent world cup bot this time is expected to dwindle to a mere 300 milliseconds.
Says Anto Binish Kaspar, Founder & CEO, RoanuzSoftwares:"This is an innovative second screen solution for cricket fans all around the world.  Being one of the best cricket data provider, it's our responsibility to continuously innovate and enrich cricket fans experiences.”
What makes this chatbot unique is that in addition to live updates, team and player stats, the bot also provides stadium based stats like player vs particular stadium, teams vs particular stadium, player vs player at particular stadium, and format based stats like team timeline, player timeline. Here’s an example of how this extremely intelligent context-aware bot uses Artificial Intelligenceand analytical capabilities to achieve its goal.
