Have you imagined having your own dedicated beat writer to cover every single one of your amateur league games? A sports writer who never misses a deadline and posts their comprehensive game summary to your homepage mere minutes after the game? That is a reality for Pointstreak’s hockey and baseball clients using the Narrative Science service that is directly integrated into their Pointstreak-powered website.
Pointstreak is continuing to redefine the landscape of sports statistics and analysis: Collaborating with Narrative Science, a key business partner since 2011, Pointstreak is continuing to improve its automated game recap feature, bringing mundane statistics and game analysis back to life.
As of part of our Spring 2014 Recap, Pointstreak is taking things a step further, giving Pointstreak Sites users the option to automatically post their game recaps straight to their Pointstreak-powered website. In essence, Pointstreak’s new narrative game summaries give teams the option to artificially generate and post game recaps, enabling players, fans and enthusiasts to enjoy a pro experience, akin to the ones seen in the NHL and MLB among others.
Here’s a real-life example of an automated game recap. If you didn’t know better, would you have been surprised to learn that a computer wrote it?
