Israeli sports-tech company WSC Sports won an “AI-ML Curation of Sports Highlights” award at the 74th Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards.
Based in the Tel Aviv suburb of Givatayim, WSC Sports developed an AI-powered platform that enables sports media rights holders to generate and distribute customized video highlights automatically and in real-time.
