AI Use Case

Track and analyse individual sports players to predict likelihood of success

Track and analyse individual players to predict likelihood of success - this has clear ramifications for scouting and talent development. Data gathered may also be used in consumer-facing applications - ranging from sports gaming to betting applications. Data gathering faces potential issues especially where it is not publicly available - e.g. training data rather than public footage - with trade-offs emerging around privacy and ownership issues.
