Retresco at SportsInnovation 2018: Live demo of the rtr textengine

Yesterday, we reported on Twitter from our live presentation of rtr textengine at SportsInnovation 2018, which took place at the ESPRIT Arena in Düsseldorf. Within this blog post, we present the generated texts and some images from the event.


[two_fifth]  [/two_fifth] SportsInnovation is a well-known platform for sports news. Established service providers such as Retresco, but also start-ups and large companies, can present or test their IT solutions in a live demo at the specially-organised games. Participants at the event and industry experts will be kept informed about the current status of the possibilities. The Retresco team, full of die-hard football and sports fans, had the opportunity to not miss a live presentation of automatically-generated football reports to an expert audience, and successfully generated the


preliminary and follow-up reports of the match during the innovative game Fortuna Düsseldorf (U17 team) against Bayer 04 Leverkusen (U team). As the market leader for automatic football texts, Retresco produce tens of thousands of texts per weekend for associations, media houses, betting providers and other digital service providers. The texts are based on data provided by Deltatre or the DFB. In addition to generating football reports, the rtr textengine is used in various application areas such as e-commerce or finance.
