Hypezone: How AI is making game streams more exciting

It means fans of games like Fortnite can use the system to automatically find the most thrilling battles. The software looks at character’s health, kill count, and other factors to help decide how exciting the battle is, and the most thrilling one happening at that moment is the one shown.

Once the game is over, it switches to another stream that is approaching its climax.
