Soon, the voices answering your sports questions on Google Assistant may be from the actual athletes themselves.
On Wednesday, the sports technology startup StatMuse received a strategic investment from the Google Assistant Investment program to help further its vision of creating a more personalized experience for sports fans.
The technology pulls from this library of words and stitches together answers to questions in each athlete's voice.
To get around the limitation, StatMuse co-founder and CEO Eli Darrow told Business Insider in a recent interview that it has partnered with popular sports personalities —like Scott Van Pelt and Jerry Rice — to be the voice of most answers.
StatMuse was also apart of Disney's Accelerator program back in 2015, which got Darrow and his co-founder Adam Elmore thinking that their platform could include all types of celebrities and animated characters.
