Microsoft announced it is in the early stage of working on a Skype bot that will allow users to make changes to their fantasy football team based on data collected from the NFL.
Microsoft first announced support for AI-driven bots in Skype earlier this year. Today, as part of the Innovation keynote at the Microsoft Ignite conference in Atlanta, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella showed off an early version of the NFL fantasy football bot with the help of former player, and current CNS and NFL Network anaylst, Deion Sanders
The demo showed that people can bring up the bot in Skype to see their current fantasy football team. Then they can click on a "recommendations" menu choice to see if the bot has any ideas for changes to that team. In this demo, it recommended that Saunders trade Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan for New Orleans Saints' Drew Brees. Saunders was skeptical of that choice, but the bot also brought up comparisons between the two quarterbacks, giving the edge to Brees.
Microsoft plans to launch this Skype NFL fantasy football bot sometime in 2017.
