Familiarity is key to Sportradar’s Simulated Reality schedule

first_imgShare Sticking to the sports calendar and playing a part in the regular football fan’s ‘ritual’ is key to the setup for Sportradar’s Simulated Reality, said the firm’s MD for US Betting Werner Becher.Sportradar launched the AI-driven product at the end of March, making it immediately available to customers as part of its existing portfolio of betting events.The product draws upon Sportradar’s historical football database and statistical output to provide match data, offering both pre-match and live betting markets for top-tier football leagues in England, Germany and Spain.With many people currently living in lockdown or furloughed from work, you might argue that scheduling has lost importance for sports bettors. Unless you are still living your normal life, why would your appetite for placing a bet be highest at the ‘normal’ time?Yet for Becher, developing a product that aligns with real matches, and the schedule to which they would have been played, was a “clear goal” for the Simulated Reality project.He said: “With Simulated Reality it was our clear goal to develop a product that is very similar to real matches and provides sports fans with what they are missing: scheduled sports matches. “Customers are used to placing bets, on football matches in particular, at specific times during the week. It’s a familiar part of a fans football ritual and it’s that familiarity that is part of Simulated Reality’s appeal.”In keeping with this theme of “familiarity”, Becher explained that all matches that were originally scheduled between the final games actually played and the launch of the Simulated Reality product will be simulated in mid-week – “as would be the case in the real world”. For the Premier League, that covers all matches lost in the three weeks that followed Leicester vs Aston Villa on 9 March.He added: “Where possible, we plan to fulfil the remaining fixtures of each league and crown a champion on each country’s final day of the season as per the original schedules. If that’s not possible, due to the sheer volume of games on offer, we’ll schedule them as close to the final fixtures as possible.”As things stand, there is obviously a lot of uncertainty around when football’s biggest leagues will resume. Germany’s Bundesliga is reportedly closing on a return, so what would happen if the real thing is back before the simulations are due to conclude in mid-May?“There’s still much uncertainty about the return of live sport,” said Becher. “If live football was to come back tomorrow, we would expect them to complete their remaining fixtures at a later date than originally scheduled.”Simulated betting markets will, therefore, be available to customers until the original end of season dates – regardless of how quickly the leagues can return. This could actually provide a real credential test for the Sportradar modelling, should postponements continue or re-emerge in the future.Becher agreed by saying: “By the time the leagues return, the Simulated Reality leagues – having followed the original fixture list – will likely be completed. It will be interesting to see, when they do return, how realistic the outcomes of our Simulated Reality games are when compared to the real games, and if the same teams came out as champions.”Launching the product three weeks ago, Sportradar said it planned to extend its Simulated Reality product to several other leagues and competitions. So what are the other sports involved? Becher concluded: “We have recently launched Simulated Reality cricket and offer T20 matches from Australia, England and India. We will very soon launch a tennis product and offer events each week covering tournaments in London, Madrid, Paris and Rome as scheduled. Looking to the future, we are developing a basketball version and evaluating some other sports as well.” Spotlight ups matchday commentary reach and capacity for new EPL Season  August 21, 2020 Premier League looks to broadcast every behind-closed-door fixture August 28, 2020 Share Submit StumbleUpon Björn Nilsson: How Triggy is delivering digestible data through pre-set triggers August 28, 2020 Related Articleslast_img read more

Saints go marching back to BCIHL Finals by sweeping TRU out of playoffs

first_imgBut the WolfPack responded — just as they had throughout the previous five periods of action — when Steven Pantazopoulos banked a shot off the body of a Saints defender with 7:23 remaining in regulation to make it a 5-3 game.But McLaughlin’s third goal of the game came on the very next shift, effectively ending any further hopes of a TRU comeback. “TRU gave us two tough games and never backed down when it seemed like we were going to start rolling and build on a lead,” said Saints head coach Jeff Dubois.”Chris Solecki was outstanding for them again tonight and really kept things tight through the end of the second period. We seemed to find another gear in the third, which was exactly what we wanted to see with a one-goal lead and the series on the line.” The teams traded a pair of goals each in the first period, as markers from McLaughlin and Garrett were quickly countered by equalizers from Dayton Shaw and Tyler Jackson.Solecki stood tall in the second period and turned away a number of excellent scoring chances before McLaughlin picked up his second of the night with less than 90 seconds remaining in the period. Chris Hurry was tested often in the third period as the WolfPack pushed to close the gap, but was solid and steady in a 21-save performance. Solecki allowed six goals on 43 shots and faced a total of 96 shots in total over the course of the two-game series.”Offensively, we hadn’t seen our A-game in a few weeks but we got stronger as the game went on tonight and seemed to convert on our chances when it counted,” Dubois said.”You don’t want to go into a championship series with any type of worries about being able to put the puck in the net, and I think we put any of that to bed in the third.” With the win, Selkirk will host the 2014 BCIHL Championships in Castlegar beginning Friday, March 14 at 7:30 p.m.The finals will follow the same best-of-three format with Game 2 set for Saturday at 7:30 PM and Game 3, if necessary, scheduled for Sunday at 6:00 PM.The Saints’ opponent will be determined on Sunday evening when Simon Fraser University and Trinity Western University meet in a third and deciding game in their semi-final series.SAINTS NOTES: Over 500 fans took in Game 2 on Saturday night, pushing the total attendance for the weekend over the 1000-mark. Former Nelson Leaf forward Connor McLaughlin scored three times to spark the Selkirk Saints to a 6-3 victory over over Thompson Rivers University in B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League semi final action Saturday night at the Castlegar Recreation Complex.The Saints sweep the best-of-three series with the WolfPack and advance to the BCIHL Finals for the second consecutive year.Selkirk, defending BCIHL champs, won the opening game of the series Friday, 3-2 in overtime.McLaughlin completed a hat trick with 6:34 to play in regulation to cap a wild third period where Selkirk finally found some finish around the TRU net.Leading 3-2 entering the frame, the Saints went up by two for the first time in the series on a Cody Fidgett goal before building a three-goal cushion when Thomas Hardy finished off a fine individual effort on the power-play.last_img read more

Chemistry Nobel Celebrates Cell Complexity

first_imgA discovery rivalling the elucidation of the genetic code is the structure of the ribosome – the “molecular machine” that translates the DNA code into proteins.  Untangling the complexity of this multi-part system won three scientists the Nobel Prize for Chemistry (see BBC News).  The winners are Venkatraman Ramakrishnan, Thomas Steitz and Ada Yonath.    Science Daily included a photo model of the ribosome and described its action:Inside every cell in all organisms, there are DNA molecules.  They contain the blueprints for how a human being, a plant or a bacterium, looks and functions.  But the DNA molecule is passive.  If there was nothing else, there would be no life.    The blueprints become transformed into living matter through the work of ribosomes.  Based upon the information in DNA, ribosomes make proteins: oxygen-transporting haemoglobin, antibodies of the immune system, hormones such as insulin, the collagen of the skin, or enzymes that break down sugar.  There are tens of thousands of proteins in the body and they all have different forms and functions.  They build and control life at the chemical level.    An understanding of the ribosome’s innermost workings is important for a scientific understanding of life.Some factoids gleaned from the reports: the ribosome contains “hundreds of thousands of atoms.”  New Scientist said that the ribosome includes a “fact-checker” which “explains why nature produces so few faulty proteins.”  Ramakrishnan said, “we knew this was a large molecular machine that translated genetic code to make proteins, but we didn’t know how it worked.”  It took many years of X-ray crystallography and other delicate techniques to determine the structure.  “We still don’t know exactly how it works, but we have made a tremendous amount of progress as a direct result of knowing what it looks like,” he added.    PhysOrg, echoing an AP story, brought Darwin into the picture – albeit briefly.  “Their work builds on Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution and, more directly, on the work done by James Watson, Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins, who won the 1962 Nobel Prize in medicine for mapping DNA’s double helix, the citation said.”  The article did not elaborate on the Darwin connection.  It appears to be a missing link.    PhysOrg also reported on an important link in the chain from code to protein that is coming to light: how the transcription process begins.  It’s another complex process still being explored.  Scientists in Munich have found one more step in the initiation process.  Patrick Cramer had this to say: “The findings led us to propose a model of the whole complicated process of transcription initiation, an operation that is of crucial importance in all organisms, because it determines which genes are expressed, and when.”  The process from gene to protein “must be carried out with great precision” and involves “the use of complicated assemblies made up of many different proteins, often referred to as molecular machines.”    Speaking of gene expression, an article last month on Science Daily revealed an even higher level of complexity: “protein regulators are themselves regulated.”  Helge Grosshans (Friedrich Miescher Institute) explained what he found: “What was formerly conceived of as a direct, straightforward pathway is gradually turning out to be a dense network of regulatory mechanisms: genes are not simply translated into proteins via mRNA.  MicroRNAs control the translation of mRNAs into proteins, and proteins in turn regulate the microRNAs at various levels.”Throwing Darwin’s name into this story was like tossing a fly into perfume.  Get it out as fast as you can.  Darwin had nothing to do with this; to him, a cell was a nearly featureless blob of protoplasm.  No way could he have envisioned any of this complex machinery.  If he had known about it, he might have become a creationist.    While these scientists are certainly deserving of recognition, the one to praise is the Creator of these amazing systems of information-guided machines.  They are just the latest in a long sequence of scientists who have gradually lifted the veil on the factory only to marvel at what they found.  For a stimulating read, pick up a copy of Stephen Meyer’s Signature in the Cell (see 06/27/2009 Resource of the Week).  You’ll not only learn the fascinating story of how these systems were discovered and how they work; you’ll be convinced forever that modern biochemistry leaves Darwinism defunct in the wastebin of discredited myths.  No attempt to resurrect Charlie’s corpse can succeed with what we have learned.  Let the dead bury their dead.  Follow the living Lord.(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Bob Stoops Agrees With Mike Gundy That OSU Has One Loss

first_imgAfter Oklahoma State thumped TCU on Saturday in Ft. Worth, Mike Gundy once again visited that pesky loss to Central Michigan way back in September.“Nobody will ever convince me we didn’t get the win,” said Gundy. “I know Kirby had mentioned the committee feels a certain way about that game, but I think Kirby is playing poker and they see us as a 10-win team. That’s just my opinion.”I expected that.What I didn’t expect is for Bob Stoops to agree with Gundy after OU crushed West Virginia in Morgantown on Saturday night.“In my eyes they only have one loss, if you play by the rules,” said Stoops. “They review everything else out here. They review a first down. You couldn’t review if that play should have been allowed or not. I have one of those. I count myself with one extra victory. That one at Oregon that everyone counted as a loss. My record book is a little different than everybody else’s.”Stoops is of course referencing the crazy Oregon-OU game from 2006 when Oregon recovered an onside kick it touched early and should not have gotten. The refs for that game were also suspended.One loss, two losses or zero losses, it doesn’t matter when it comes to the Big 12 (although it might for the CFB Playoff!) because Bedlam, for the fourth time in six seasons will once again be for the Big 12 championship.
