iGB: Can you tell us a little bit about what PandaScore is? On the second side of AI, it’s more traditional. It’s about how to predict what’s happening. With the mass of data we create, how can you predict who’s going to win? How many points, how many kills, how many objectives, and so on and so forth. Which player is going to perform the best? It’s a lot of machine learning, which is a bit different from AI, but it’s also applying some newer models to these kinds of predictions. On this specific aspect, I think esports and the complexity of esports rely on the amount of data you can generate. It’s much more virtual: there is much more of an economy in the game, there are more items, so many things that compose the game that are very rich. If you’re treating esports with a normal sports approach, it’s going to be very difficult to predict anything properly. It changed the quality and depth of the product that you can build and the kind of content you can create for fans who want to place bets. Email Address The role of AI in esports betting Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter By Kenneth Williams Tags: betting Esports Data Artificial Intelligence The last thing we do with them is provide them with some raw statistics through a widget. It’s basically a webpage that you can integrate into your own website. These statistics help the fans and punters bet. It helps them relate and understand what is happening. This is also increasing engagement from the punters and something we really find valuable, especially in esports. Esports is more data-driven than traditional sports. It’s the DNA of gamers to compete and score points in every game they play. They have a strong relationship with it all the time. iGB: What was PandaScore’s impact on the recently upgraded esportsbook from Pixel.bet? AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Esports Our relationship and involvement with Pixel.bet is on helping them offer the most complete experience possible in sports betting. One of the few things that really stands out is the diversity of bets that we can help Pixel.bet offer to their customers. For League of Legends we would offer around 70, 80 different types of bets ranging from the basic match-winner to how many tricks, how many kills, very specific esports types of bets. At the end of the day, this is what esports fans want, to have something specific to esports and not just very generic match-winner, handicap, things that esports fans might not relate to that much compared to sports markets. iGB: Why is PandaScore’s AI a game-changer for esports betting odds? French startup PandaScore provides real-time AI-powered statistics to media companies, esports teams and bookmakers. iGB caught up with its CEO Flavien Guillocheau to learn more about his esports data collection platform. Flavien Guillocheau: We founded the company [a little over] five years ago. When we started out, I was looking at what existed in traditional sports. It’s more mature nowadays, there are many different activities for fans to engage with esports. Five, six years ago, it was much more difficult for a fan to do anything. For example, if you were trying to place a bet, it was difficult to find a bookmaker. If you were trying to find very basic information like who’s playing tonight or the result of the match yesterday – the basic stuff that, as a fan, you want to engage with – there wasn’t much there. My idea at the time was to help businesses build this kind of basic experience. What we’re doing is providing data on esports matches to different types of businesses. We work with some professional teams, we work with the media, broadcasters and tournament organisers, fantasy, betting and so forth. Our mission is to help any business build whatever kind of experience they want for fans. Topics: Esports esports betting Flavien Guillocheau: Since the early days, it was very difficult to imagine doing data collection manually or with an approach that isn’t scalable or automated. Very early on, we decided to build an automated process to collect data. Six years ago, it was the early days of AI in the more mainstream startup thing. What we do is we use two different parts of AI. First is computer vision, so we analyse video feeds with AI the same way a Tesla car drives and analyses what’s happening on the street. We use the same type of technology, and this allows us to create statistics.As for the impact of AI and how it’s a game-changer, the depth AI can bring in data collection is unique. It can create a huge amount of data very quickly. Coming back to League of Legends, we collect 300 data points in half a second. It’s a lot of data. It’s very quick, very automated and very accurate. That’s the first layer of where AI can help. If you think about it, it can also be applied to traditional sports. Not just to esports, it can be applied to anything. 13th April 2021 | By contenteditor Flavien Guillocheau: A year-and-a-half ago, we decided to launch a product dedicated to bookmakers because we realised that the betting companies couldn’t do much with just data, raw statistics. They don’t have the esports expertise internally; they can’t build the odds themselves. So two years ago, we decided to build our own odds feeds coming from our data that we collect in real-time, after the match, etc., and transforming this data into odds. What we do with Pixel.bet and all of our customers is we provide them the odds feed pretty much live. We provide them on many esports. We cover the big three: League of Legends, CS:GO and Dota 2, plus Rocket League, Overwatch, Call of Duty, so on and so forth. More recently we added Rainbow Six.

A joint analysis, in this respect, concluded that due to the advanced stage of preparations and the need for a detailed assessment of the potential logistical impact on the host country, more time would be required and a decision could not be taken before the deadline of June.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Why saving for retirement could be the biggest mistake you ever make! Forget about gambling on the horses and hitting the shops on payday. In this article I’ll talk about one of the biggest mistakes that Britons make with their money. And unnervingly, it’s one of the most common traps that we all fall into.I’m talking about choosing to lock up your money in a low-yielding savings account. Okay, you may think I’m being a tad overdramatic but hear me out. It could make or break your retirement plans.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Rubbish returnsFor most of us, the first step to building a handsome nest egg comes from a disciplined approach to saving money. The proverb “watch the pennies and the pounds will take care of themselves” has remained timeless for a reason. But what’s the point in scrimping and saving only to put your money to work in the wrong place?This is where millions of us go wrong. Instead of using our money to invest in a financial product providing a decent rate of return, a great number of us simply bung it in a poor-yielding cash savings account and forget about it.Let me illustrate the effect that this can have on your finances. Say that you choose to invest £200 a month into the best-paying Cash ISA currently on the market. One where the yield sits at 1.35%. Over the course of 30 years you’d only have a paltry £88,600 for all of your hard work.And things promise to get worse following fresh interest cuts today. As Rhydian Lewis, CEO of peer to peer platform RateSetter, said: “The Bank of England has made the right call to support the economy at this difficult time. However, millions of savers will be nervously anticipating the interest rates on their cash to be cut to zero. With this year’s ISA deadline just around the corner and equities extremely volatile, more people than ever will now be looking for alternatives that perform steadily in order to keep their money earning.”The better route to retirement richesSurely you’d be better off putting your hard-saved pennies and pounds to work in a Stocks and Shares ISA, for instance?Like its cash equivalent, this product allows you to set aside up to £20,000 in a tax year away from the prying eyes of the taxman. But the possible returns here are vastly larger than those you can expect from a Cash ISA.Let’s say that an individual putting £200 away a month puts it in a stocks-backed ISA instead. Based on the average annual rate of return (of between 8% and 10%) that long-term investors can expect to generate, this person can anticipate a fat cash pot of between £281,700 and £412,600 over that three-decade period. A big upgrade from that sub-£90,000 return that a Cash ISA would generate at current rates, right?The beauty for share investors right now is that the recent washout across financial markets leaves a lot of stocks looking shockingly undervalued. Some of these carry mighty dividend yields too. Take insurance giant Aviva and its whopping reading of 10.3% for 2020. Or utilities giant National Grid and broadcaster ITV, firms whose yields sit at a tasty 5.5% and 9% respectively.The FTSE 100 is packed with long-term opportunity, in fact. And recent weakness leaves investors with a chance to make a big cash pile for retirement.

See all posts by Cohan Chew Will Aston Martin’s shares ever return to pre-pandemic levels? Image source: Aston Martin Like the majority of companies in 2020, Aston Martin Lagonda Global Holdings (LSE:AML) saw its share price tumble amid the global Covid-19 pandemic. Starting the year at 3,442p, Aston Martin reached lows of 983p in March. However, also like other companies, Aston Martin’s share price is now rising and currently sits at 2,030p. But can the British car company restore its share price to pre-pandemic levels and, more importantly, can it rise higher?Economists tell us that luxury goods are subject to high demand elasticity and thus, in a financial crisis, are impacted hard. As a luxury car maker, Aston Martin fell victim to this, with revenue dropping from £650 million in 2019 to £270 million in 2020. Retail sales dropped from 4,482 units in 2019 to 2,752 a year later, too.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…With far less money coming in, Aston Martin raised a total of $1.1bn at a high interest rate of 10.5% in 2020. It’s a gutsy move but a rather unnerving one from a shareholder’s perspective. The additional funds might sprout new opportunities and R&D investments for the firm but could just be used for filling in holes. Coupled with issuing £250m more shares last year for more cash, Aston Martin may have patched up its 2020 dent but would need to outperform to make the debt interest worthwhile.What’s more worrying to me about the luxury car group is that its pre-pandemic performance was hardly impressive. Just glancing at its share price chart from its 2018 IPO, one will notice a consistent downward trend. Enter Your Email Address Aston Martin’s poor performance has largely been attributed to its poor management and the increasing pressure on the car market to shift to environmentally friendly vehicles. The EU has mandated that from 2021, the EU fleet-wide average emission target for new cars will be 95 g CO2/km. The penalty is €95 for each g/km of target exceedance. Aston Martin’s current fleet averages just over 200g CO2. Considering the appeal for Aston Martin surrounds its high performance and robust petrol engines, I believe the luxury car marker has an uphill battle ahead of it.However, it’s not all bleak for Aston Martin. Canadian Billionaire Lawrence Stroll bought a 16.7% stake in the business and became the CEO of the company. Whilst Stroll’s performance with Aston Martin has yet to be measured, his track record and success with Racing Point Force India, Tommy, Michael Kors, Pierre Cardin and Ralph Lauren is promising.Furthermore, in late 2020, Mercedes-Benz increased its stake in Aston Martin to 20%. Mercedes’ impressive hybrid and electric engine systems will be fully available to Aston Martin by 2022.Aston Martin itself is aiming for 20-30% of its fleet to be hybrid by 2024. Additionally, Aston Martin has proven that its engineering can adapt efficiently to greener solutions. Its 612bhp electric super-saloon Rapide E is already outperforming its 552bhp V12 counterpart.In conclusion, Aston Martin has had a turbulent year and an even more shaky past. However, armed with a new CEO and engineering prowess, Aston Martin’s shares might shift up a gear too.

The residence is located along a gently-sloped hillside with no other house or obstacle around. It took some thinking for me to visualize a house standing in the middle of grass land. The house needed to provide a sense of protection since it would be the client’s final home. It also needed to be supple to blend with the surrounding natural environment. Standing in this rich land, I wanted the house to have a sturdy and fragile presence at the same time.Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaThe adjacent street has almost no pedestrian traffic, but buses pass by a few times a day, and there is relatively heavy car traffic. In order to securely open the house to the surroundings, the living quarter had to be lifted higher to avoid the view from the street. The house can be opened in all four directions as long as it is not visible from the street. This would be, however, the final home for the female client. It is important to secure the comfort of her everyday lives first and then plan for extraordinary moments. Thus the house’s openness and closed-ness have to be well balanced. In other words, the centrifugal force toward the exterior (the scenery) and the centripetal force (force of shelter) toward the interior must pull each other with an equal strength.Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaI proposed a compact square plan from the beginning in order to meet the budget and accommodate the necessary programs. Although each room is very small, the rooms could create spaces (parts) with distinct spatial qualities if they were positioned in different directions and assembled. This would give the client options of space to occupy. Specifically speaking, “soto-no-ma (exterior room)” – intended for sitting – has a flat, low ceiling which extends the space horizontally toward the surrounding nature. “Naka-no-ma (interior room)”, on the other hand, has a ceiling following the roof’s pyramid shape and is filled with natural light from the top. The diffused light creates different nuances of shadows on the ceiling and draws the space vertically toward the sky.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessAIV-Schinkel-Wettbewerb Competition Winning Proposal / David WeclawowiczUnbuilt ProjectThe ‘Power of Architecture’: Louis Kahn ExhibitionEvent Share Architects: acaa Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!© Hiroshi Ueda+ 23 Share Houses ArchDaily “COPY” Skyward House / acaa Year: 2012 Area: 408 m² Area: 408 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year: Japan ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/346185/skyward-house-acaa Clipboard CopyHouses•Kofu, Japan ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/346185/skyward-house-acaa Clipboard “COPY” 2012 CopyAbout this officeacaaOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKofuHousesJapanPublished on March 19, 2013Cite: “Skyward House / acaa” 19 Mar 2013.

The plot is situated on the edge of a steep plateau and occupies the borderline position in the row of houses. This position invited a plentiful of interpretations of open and closed spaces. The combination of two volumes was arranged in such a way so as to allow an uninterrupted sightline between the sea and the house situated behind our plot. The location of the house itself was largely determined by the desire to preserve as many of the existing trees as possible. Another important factor was the necessity to create a harmonious interrelation between the house, the garden and the sea view. These three environments are placed each along its own line and they interact in a variety of ways, depending on the position of the observer (whether it is the garden, the house or the mirador). Save this picture!© Andrey Avdeenko The entire space opens towards the sea. In addition to the outer sea horizon, which is a typical feature of any seaside house, we introduced another water surface – that of the swimming pool, which enhances the visible proximity of the sea. The swimming pool is composed of two parts that can be separated or joined together depending on the season. Water element is the heart of the house, which explains its name: Waterpatio. Save this picture!© Andrey Avdeenko The owner of the house is a successful businessman with half-pragmatic and half-romantic personality. His grown-up children live separately, so the house has minimum isolated spaces and looks like a house for a newly-wed couple. The contrast between open and closed spaces continues in the way how the house faces the street with its closed side and opens towards the sea and the garden. Save this picture!© Andrey Avdeenko The central entrance into the house divides it into two functional blocks. The lower block contains a garage, a storage room, and the so called wellness zone, with a swimming pool, sauna and hammam. The other is the living block. The skylight in the hall makes this division even more distinctive. When entering the house one immediately understands the interrelation between different zones. Save this picture!Section The main living space on the ground floor combines the functions of a dining room, a lounge zone and a small kitchen. The multi-purpose “island” in the middle contains audio- and visual facilities, a fireplace, a TV set, a mini-bar, air-conditioning equipment and a small library. The entire internal circulation is performed around this “island” and enables easy access to the upper floor and to the basement, which houses a gym and an indoor cinema. Save this picture!© Andrey Avdeenko On the upper floor there is a small library, two guest rooms and one spacious master bedroom. The flared space of the upper floor opens towards the sea horizon through the master bedroom and bathroom and shows a never-ending “marine” movie. The garden itself is structured with the help of terraces that make it appear more spacious than it actually is. The garden is denser near the house where it serves as a protective “Mediterranean” wall.
