HYDERABAD, India, July 9, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — The International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIITH), and Athlyte Inc. will collaborate to develop advanced algorithms and data models for sports analytics. These models and algorithms will serve to enhance Athlyte’s Next Generation Sports Communicators Technology Platform. This platform will use natural language processing and advanced search techniques, to help US college sports communicators be able to search for stats and other sports information as well as generate narratives from the data using advanced language models.


The IIITH team, led by Prof. Manish Shrivastava, will jointly work with members of Athlyte’s team on projects, including developing a natural language-based search engine specific to Athlyte’s sports data and architecture and generating sports content and stories using data mining, pattern recognition, AI and deep learning technology. 


Dr. Kiron Shastry, President and CEO of Athlyte Inc., said: “The partnership between IIITH and Athlyte brings together a high performance team that will deliver cutting edge solutions, to help make college sports communicators more effective. I am really pleased at the speed at which the IIITH team understood the requirements and has developed solutions that go a long way to optimize data extraction from text files. I look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with IIITH.” 

Dr. Manish Shrivastava, Assistant Professor at the Language Technologies Research Center, and faculty lead for the Athlyte–IIITH partnership, said, “With the current advances in natural language processing and the fact that sports analytics have not benefited much from these advances, I am really looking forward to this partnership, and I believe together we could make significant impact in this area.”
