AI predicts how athletes will react in certain situations


When you think of sports analysis, you probably think of raw stats like time in the opposing half or shots on goal. However, that doesn’t really tell teams how they should have played beyond vague suggestions. Researchers at Disney, Caltech and STATS believe they can do better: they’ve developed a system that uses deep learning to analyze athletes’ decision-making processes. After enough training based on players’ past actions, the system’s neural networks can predict future moves and create a “ghost” of a player’s typical performance. If a team flubbed a play, it could compare the real action against the predictive ghosts of more effective teams to see how players should have acted.
