Now that technology has developed so much that the activities of companies in various fields depend on it and even help increase performance, business models are changing.
Artificial intelligence and machine learning are part of many areas of science and everyday life. There are such applications for financial services, medicine, autonomous driving, but also for the betting & gaming industry.
Large companies in these sectors have understood the opportunity offered by the current use of mobile devices so that they have become providers of information technology, following the Big Four Tech model – Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google.
This translates into better and more diverse customer experiences, which means a more sustainable business, but also a more responsible one.
The use of information technology as a foundation in the area of trading, betting & gaming has a positive impact in addressing the issue of addiction.
In this way, with the help of technology, a behavior that tends to become addictive and possibly block access to the platform for a period of time can be stopped in time. But, just as well, technology can work to the advantage of companies in this industry and can even limit significant losses by calculating all the risks in real time.
The sports betting industry is starting to look like the financial industry very quickly. As a result, many bookmakers are moving to have their own models to predict the outcome of sporting events (similar to banks, which have large amounts of data that set stock option prices), while some experts validate and monitor the models.
Robots make financial transactions with astonishing speed, and based on artificial intelligence they can react to news in the press in real time. Correlations can be made with super speed, and the trading decision can be made much faster than the trader / broker can.
Are betting & gaming and trading companies turning into technology companies? How important is the technology behind such companies and what is it aimed at? Will artificial intelligence be able to make accurate predictions?
