Kings Artificial Intelligence (KAI) version 2.0 – designed and developed by Sapien.ai – comes fully equipped with Kings domain knowledge, subscription-based news feeds, an advanced persistent menu with user feedback options, Facebook Messenger sticker recognition, Golden 1 Center information, and a new real-time data feed.
“We’re excited to offer Kings fans what we think is the most sophisticated bot for the Messenger experience in sports,” said Kings Chief Technology Officer Ryan Montoya. “It’s the latest example of our commitment to utilizing technology to enhance the fan experience.”
KAI is an official professional sports bot for Messenger capable of generating dynamic responses for real-time scoring, player stats, scheduling, and more. Unlike most bots which rely upon a static or pre-deterministic approach to responses, KAI combines both static and NBA API-driven intents to create responses that update in real-time. With this latest release, KAI now has the ability to understand and fulfill over 10,000 different user queries.
“We are delighted the Sacramento Kings have launched version 2.0 of KAI, their bot for Messenger,” said Stan Chudnovsky, Vice President of Product for Messenger. “This product will allow the team to interact with its fans in new and engaging ways.”
Kings fans may now ask KAI “What's the score?”, “When's tip-off?”, or “How tall is Willie Cauley-Stein?”
