Football through the eyes of the computer

In my presentation, I will use football as an example to introduce our approach of tracking and analyzing real-time skeleton movement data. I will talk about the steps we perform (as well as the challenges we needed to overcome in the past) and how our developments in artificial intelligence get together with the goals of the coaching team and the analysts we cooperate with in day-to-day match analysis. My presentation will include my vision and interpretation of how football analysis needs to be performed now and in the coming years.
