The duo will collaborate to offer next-gen AI-powered technology to national federations and leagues.

Basketball global governing body FIBA and Genius Sports have expanded their long-term partnership until 2035. Under the terms of the amended agreement, both companies will work together to provide national federations and leagues with computer vision technology and AI-powered capabilities.

The duo’s collaboration goes back nearly two decades. Since 2004, Genius Sports and FIBA have supplied live data and technology solutions to more than 200 national leagues.

FIBA Secretary General Andreas Zagklis elaborated further by saying, “For almost 20 years, FIBA and Genius Sports have joined forces in developing the most innovative tools for leagues and national federations across all levels of basketball.

"Through this automated solution, our objective is to assist National Federations and Leagues to increase their reach and revenue and at the same time, reduce costs.

“We’re delighted to expand our partnership with Genius Sports to achieve this goal and equip the FIBA Family with first access to this cutting-edge technology in basketball.”

The new agreement names Genius Sports as FIBA’s official data & video capture and production partner. Genius Sports will also represent FIBA as its official innovation and technology services partner for a 10-year term, starting in 2025.

Genius Sports CEO Mark Locke said, “We’re thrilled to expand our landmark partnership with FIBA, equipping Leagues and National Federations with state-of-the-art technology to transform how their fans, coaches, officials, broadcasters and sponsors interact with live data and video.

“Powered by our unique AI-driven system, Leagues and National Federations at all levels of basketball will be able to automate data and video collection and utilize the highest quality player and team tracking data.”

Michael Hershman - Dispelling casino 'myths:' New York needs to lose fear of the unknown

Michael Hershman, CEO of the Soloviev Group, joins Tim Poole on the Huddle to put forward his case that the Freedom Plaza is the way to go for one of New York's casino licences. He fields a variety of questions - not shying away from any of them - on why 'myths' about casinos and a fear of the unknown should be dispelled, as well as acknowledging the strength of rival bids and discussing opposition to the project.

Five years ago, before the mass proliferation of social media we see today – and even before the Covid-19 pandemic – I think you would be hard pressed to find a CEO talking about “Instagrammable moments.” KPIs w...
