Canadian Sport and Entertainment Leader Relies on ICARO AI for Corporate Security and Risk Management Services
NEW YORK – February 28, 2023 – ICARO Media Group, Inc. (ICARO™), an AI Technology Media for Telecom (TMT) and media broadcast companies, is licensing access to ICARO’s AI-driven Critical Event Notification System (CENS) to Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment (MLSE), Canada’s preeminent leader in delivering top quality sport and entertainment experiences.
ICARO’s CENS is a unique, real-time situational awareness event platform utilizing the immense power and capacity of Artificial Intelligence to scour, read, interpret and analyze an all-source amalgam of information that assesses millions of data sources. Advanced machine learning and AI detect events in real-time as they are reported in social media, providing institutions with accurate and impactful verified intelligence.
CENS ensures that the information comes from trusted sources, located in the geographic vicinity of the events in question. Relevant verified and filtered information is delivered to the appropriate individuals, allowing them to act in a proactive and responsive manner. Published events are assigned Importance Levels of “Information,” “Warning,” or “Critical” according to their severity and degree of immediate impact, providing clients with the insights necessary to respond accordingly.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to announce our agreement with the Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment organization,” stated Paul Feller, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ICARO Media Group. “MLSE is the parent company of premier professional sports teams, and the owner/operator of sports arenas and venues who will use the ICARO AI Critical Event Notification System (CENS) to power access to verified intelligence and data to provide advanced safety for their athletes and fans.”
“The ability to be alerted about events while on the road or close to home has been incredibly helpful,” according to Steve Walker, Director TML Player Security for MLSE. “We are able to get near real time information on things that are happening without needing to overly rely on information from local sources like we did in the past. Often the alert will come in before an event officially hits the news. What’s great is we are able to pre-populate our schedule so there is no need to input locations before a game, and the support using the tool has been fantastic.”
