Sports has seen an increase in data produced, primarily due to tracking and wearable sensors. One might assume that a rise in data and metrics in sports would help athletes and coaches to support decisions - But this is hard said than done, as currently, there is an overwhelming amount of data to analyse. In other application areas, Machine learning methodologies have been employed successfully to help practitioners with these problems. Such examples can be seen in preventive maintenance, recommendation systems and others. In many of these applications, domain and technical expertise were required. Machine learning in sports is a relatively new field and holds big potential for innovation. This summer school aims to accelerate the development of skills of the participants necessary to develop machine learning models and methodologies applied to sports through a cross-disciplinary approach. At the end of the course, you will become an Olympian in Sports Analytics!
