Big Data, sports in continuous evolution thanks to data analysis
Nowadays the sport goes far beyond the games and the matches played: it has become almost technological, based on marketing, business and technology and, above all, it is shared everywhere instantly via internet.
For some time now, many sports companies have been using “Big Data” to make the most of the possibilities offered by technology. Predictive analysis systems are at the center of the collaboration. The advantages can be many:
– performance monitoring during matches to prevent health problems and injury risks, also aiming to improve game tactics.
– a predictive model designed to improve earnings within the stadium.
– access to information on many statistics related to matches, trying to prevent the results of future ones.
It seems rather clear that the work of any sports manager and professional trainer can no longer be separated from Machine Learning and from taking on skills in data science and data analysis. Because the professional sports scene has already changed forever.
