NEW YORK – January 4, 2024 – ICARO™ Media Group, Inc., a Technology Media for Telecom (TMT) sector company, has announced the launch of its new AI-generated Game Recap product on the TIM News portal, operated jointly between TIM Brasil and ICARO.
Created especially for Sports content creators and fans, ICARO’s AI-powered Game Recap toolset creates articles based on minute-by-minute statistics and social media for professional sporting events. Articles include embeddable content and media related to the game, including a primary image automatically generated from venue images and team logos.
ICARO’s Game Recap feature is an example of completely original content created from both structured and unstructured data. The interpretation of social media feedback in particular provides a model with information that allows creation of more engaging content that goes beyond simple statistical information. Content can be generated for numerous sports and leagues in a multitude of languages, including professional soccer and NBA matches.
“ICARO goes beyond simple stats,” explained Alex Zivkovic, ICARO’s Chief AI Officer. “It delves deep into data and fan sentiment, extracting key insights and weaving them into informative, engaging narratives for sports fans.”
Game Recaps are part of the ICARO News Studio workflow, allowing seamless review, editing and publishing of game recaps on engagement portals such as TIM News.
