Sport Science - ML for Skill Analysis

Modern tech has been developed to see like humans, but still lacks the ability to process observations like humans do. Getting your model to distinguish a cat from a dog is one problem, but can we really get ML to fundamentally alter the way sports are coached?

In this talk, we explore how Pose Estimation can be utilized to analyze a sports player’s body movements and mechanics to give concrete steps for skill improvement. By taking basketball as an example, we see how players can model their game after professionals, and how this tech could lead to ubiquitous access to development. There are problems with the way basketball players practice and improve, and we propose a convenient and efficient solution to turn more Players into Ballers!
