Pantheon is a technological interaction tool between streamers and their communities.

Winner of the 2018 IBM Watson Build competition, Pantheon’s AI detects a streamer’s desire to interact with his audience and translates it into a contextual question, delivered in real time during the stream through a Twitch extension.

Resilient to subject change (and thus to the game) as well as device changes (streaming platforms, TV, etc.), Pantheon doesn’t require any action from the streamer – thereby reducing obastacles to adoption.

Pantheon helps spectators interact with streamers and influence their decisions, lets streamers concentrate on content and revenue, and lets broadcasters enhance their offers and audiences.
