Casinojournal.com: Artificial intelligence-driven solution to mitigate economic impact of partial casino closures
In the wake of the current coronavirus pandemic, many casinos will temporarily close and will implement social distancing measures within their properties when they are operational. nQube, in collaboration with partners at University of Manitoba Data Science NEXUS, recognizes that many casinos are looking for strategies to protect their customers, while also minimizing the impact to business. In order to mitigate the spread of the virus, casinos may consider temporarily shutting off some slot machines or rearranging their casino floors to increase the physical distance between players.
“We calculate how limiting the number of slot machines and the maximum allowed casino occupancy will affect slot revenues, and we determine which machines should be left on to maximize revenues.”
