3. Provision of the Service by Neurolingo
3.1 Neurolingo is in the business of creating actionable information from unstructured text. In the case of the Service, Neurolingo is focused on creating a forecast about the outcome of sporting events by determining the collective opinions/ sentiment of sports fans from the Twitter Universe. In its current version, the Service handles Tweets written mainly in English Language and is monitoring sporting events from the English Barclays Premier League and UEFA Champions League competitions (both European Football competitions). The Service attempts to draw the common forecasting picture through its proprietary Sentiment Based Forecasting (SBF) algorithm. Each Tweet received, is being automatically processed and analyzed in order to be determined whether it refers to any of the Service’s available game events and express either a prediction, feeling or wish for the likely outcome. The collective results are then further processed to produce the final SBF (Sentiment Based Forecasting) figures for each game event. SBF figures comprises of three numbers; The SBF Home Percentage, the SBF Draw Percentage and the SBF Away Percentage. The Service illustrates graphically the SBF results for each available sporting event in real-time. The Service provides the ability to end users to create their own SBF figures by configuring a set of pre-defined SBF parameters. You acknowledge and agree that:
  • the Service is not 100% accurate and relievable, and there may be errors in terms of the correct automated analysis of each Tweet and identification whether it refers or not to a specific sporting event and express either a prediction, feeling or wish for the likely outcome,
  • the Service processes the Twitter Stream via the Twitter Streaming API and there are certain limitations on how many Tweets the Service can handle per second,
  • the Service takes into account every Tweet that receives through the Twitter Streaming API and does not reject or misprocess any Tweet by intent,
  • the Service does not guarantee that can process every Tweet and that the Sample of Tweets for every sporting event is random and based only on the Twitter Streaming API limitations, the time that the Service starts monitoring the Twitter Universe for a specific sporting event and the Service’s processing speed limitations,
  • the Service does not guarantee that its proprietary SBF algorithm is correct, accurate and reliable, and
  • the Service does not intent to provide betting predictions, tips, advices/instructions and/or any type of betting guidance to the end users.
