Officiating Marketplace Incorporates Artificial Intelligence and Gamification
Silbo, Inc., the leading automation platform for sports officials and amateur sports leagues, announced the addition of machine learning and gamification to its mobile app. Silbo provides sports officials more opportunities to work than ever before, while offering game providers access to the nation’s largest community of qualified referees and umpires.
The Silbo platform uses artificial intelligence to act as a personal assistant for sports officials. Its curated user experience includes individualized game recommendations tailored to each official’s preferences and capabilities. Additionally, officials now earn badges and rewards for completing achievements, such as working their 1st or 100th game.
“From the beginning, we focused on making the Silbo app easy to use. Now, as we continue to add more features, our primary goal remains making the user experience simple and enjoyable,” said Paul Dorney, CTO and co-founder. “With our latest updates, we’re leveraging data to make the app smarter and more fun. We’ve improved game-matching with our recommendation engine and we’ve added an element of play with the ability to earn badges.
