GamerAI: Building an AI assistant for eSports teams and enthusiast players

eSports (or professional gaming) is a rapidly growing industry, with tournament viewership already surpassing traditional sport broadcasting. By 2020, the eSports industry is estimated to be worth US$1.4 billion. As the industry becomes more competitive, GamerAI will equip eSports players and teams with insights and strategies to maximise their chances of winning every competitive match they play.

The GamerAI team are developing AI tools that can break down game footage into a log of events or actions which are then compared to match outcomes. The GamerAI team is working directly with esports teams to measure performance and validate this technology.

This talk will discuss the challenges faced by eSports teams, the technology being developed to solve these problems, and a demo of GamerAI in action.
