Data Science and Sports seminar

Data Science and Sports seminar

This event was organized by Delft Data Science in collaboration with the Leiden Centre of Data Science (LCDS) and the Sports Engineering Institute of TU Delft.

Data and sports are an exciting combination. Can performance be improved by using available data? Can new types of data be gathered that will yield novel insights in performance? How can measured data be visualized to be optimally usable for supporting staff?  Which data related questions are urgent in various disciplines in sports?  

There were presentations by representatives of sports associations, research groups and companies. Moreover there were pitches by students and (embedded) scientists. Speakers such as Kamiel Maase (NOC*NSF), Jac Orie (Team Lotto NL-Jumbo), Arno Knobbe (Universiteit Leiden), Elmar Eisemann (TU Delft), Stephan Lukosch (TU Delft) and Frans van der Helm (Sports Engineering Institute).
