An information processing device has been patented that is designed to deliver a moving image to a user based on their predicted outcome of a predetermined competition. The device includes a processor that selects a delivery candidate moving image from a plurality of options based on a predetermined criterion. The user is then sent a list indicating the selected delivery candidate moving image.

In one embodiment, the processor selects the delivery candidate moving image based on an evaluation result obtained from information on a bet made by the performer in each of the moving images. This evaluation result can be calculated based on factors such as the figure on a bet of the performer in the immediately preceding competition or the number of consecutive times the performer has won bets.

The processor can also calculate an evaluation value for each moving image based on variation in a betting amount among bets made by the performer in the predetermined period. The delivery candidate moving image is then selected according to this evaluation value.

Additionally, the processor can identify a feature of a bet moving image that the user has previously made a bet on while viewing. This feature is learned through machine learning and the user is sent a list indicating the delivery candidate moving image that has the identified feature.

The information processing device can be part of an information processing system that includes a user terminal. The processor can select the delivery candidate moving image based on criteria set according to user identification information associated with the user terminal. The selected moving image can be displayed on the user terminal's display unit.

Overall, this patented information processing device and method provide a way to deliver moving images to users based on their predicted outcomes of competitions, taking into account various factors such as performer bets, user betting history, and machine learning.
