Hey all, my name is Eyal, I left NASA to pursue my dream to solve one of the biggest problems in League of Legends live streaming to date. My team and I have been tirelessly working on an AI-based search engine that finds the most relevant streamers for you from all major platforms so we can all have some quality time watching Faker look-alikes clutching live or Tyler1 look-alikes feeding top lane ;).
Shout out to our closed alpha testers that made this product worthy of this post!

There are tens of thousands of League streamers spread across several platforms with such a diverse range of personalities and typecasts. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to find the most relevant streamer for us. We’re trying to solve this with machine learning!
We built a hybrid recommendation engine powered by cutting edge technology, which utilizes:
Collaborative Filtering (Netflix technology) – Our engine creates look-alike audiences with similar users’ tastes from billions of data points, brought using Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook’s APIs.
Content-Based Filtering (Spotify technology) – Our engine scans hundreds of thousands of live streams and provides real-time analysis of the content by analyzing the stream’s video, audio, and chat.
What is Jumper?
A search engine that finds the most relevant streamers for you according to your taste, from all major platforms.
How does it work?
- You pick at least 5 streamers that you like.
- We predict 16 streamers that you should know.
- You remove irrelevant streamers from our prediction.
- You receive a list of streamers that fit you the best.
You can throw all your favorite streamers and get more similar to them, or focus your search on specific roles, personalities, playstyle, region, even played characters and see the results.
Live streaming today is where music was in the ’90s. But instead of having 20 bands to listen to, we have dozens of streamers that we usually follow. Finding a streamer that has the personality we can relate to, who plays our favorite characters, roles, and playstyle is a never-ending hustle. COVID did not help. On the contrary, it caused inflation of content that flooded the live streaming industry and changed the landscape even more.
Watching League live already changed our consumer behavior. If our grandparents watch TV, and our parents watch Netflix, we and our buddies watch live streams.
We believe that the next technological leap in the live streaming field is to personalize the selection of relevant streamers for viewers, just like what technology (Spotify) did to music.
We do not know if this is the solution to our problem, but we think it is the first step. Allowing the League community to explore and find more streamers in the domain of League, according to their tastes instead of running empty query lines on Google: “Best League streamers”, “Best Junglers”, “Chill League stream”, “Educational League”, “League esports”, etc.
Do you agree this is the first step? Did you like the results you received? What personality did you get :)?
We would love to get your feedback! Please feel free to comment below if you have questions or suggestions.
