Playing Soccer with AI
Everyone can do it
Right now soccer players are being scouted by scouts. Based on a gut feeling people are selected, and the only data being used are mere performance analyzations in games.
With AI we can improve this, and make sure people are selected based on data, and not on gut feeling. Measureing performance, and predicting results of players.
There is an immense amount of video data of people practicing soccer available. Yet, all of this data is stashed away and not being looked at again due to the sheer amount of data. However, this data could be immensely powerfull for tracking the current and predicting the future performance of a player.
How AI Can Help
AI can be used to easily extract data from the video. By traditional programming methods it would be infeasible to extract the keeppie uppie count, but with AI this can be easily achieved. From these counts It would be possible to make predictions about how well a soccer player would perform.
An prototype that can transform multiple input videos of the same person into an accurate player passport.
